    So I'm using a Windows computer, one which has been running smoothly for months. I open up Access, which I use every day, and it pops up with something like "this software has expired, please upgrade or uninstall". Setting the date back fixed it, but it gave me quite a fright, and was rather rude. No warnings or anything, just suddenly decided to pop up today.

    So here I am, 10 minutes later, still waiting for the Office uninstaller to load. I've decided to get rid of Office 2003 and go back to XP, but it seems to be kicking and screaming.

    Edit: Now that I look closer, it seems that it's actually uninstalled (no "are you sure?" messages!) and didn't bother to tell me that it had finished (or started, for that matter). I've been sitting here looking at a blank screen, waiting for something to appear.
