Yeah, but how many people received their computers with Office, including Clippy, already installed? I think if I'd called Systems and asked them to come re-install Office so I didn't have to look at Clippy I would have been put at the bottom of a veeeeery long list. :-)

Sure there was, just don't install it in the first place. Office Assistant
is included in the default install of Office 97, but it's really not that
hard to do a custom install and uncheck Clippy and his pals.
