I installed Office 97 on a Z370, Windows 10 system in 2017. Now this system is going to my daughter and she wants her later version of Office.

Going through Control Panel to uninstall Office 97 absolutely does not work, I have the original disk, and the uninstall command simply tries to INSTALL Office 97. Repeating this effort several times, via Control Panel OR CCleaner, always produced the same result. I really don't want to install Win 10 fresh, just to uninstall Office 97.

Will appreciate any suggestions.

A funny thing happened on the way to uninstalling Office 97:
Today, when I booted the computer with the unwanted Office 97, Office 97 was already gone,
evidently from the seemingly unsuccessful attempts a few days ago.
I ran CCleaner to see what it would pick up, and saw no evidence of Office 97 files.
Hopefully, all is solved.
Thanks for the help.
