If you click on him with the mouse, then he should ask "what do you want me to do"?

In his speech bubble will be an 'options' button, click on it and you will have a gallery of less annoying characters to choose from. I like Rocky, or Earl the depressed cat.

Unfortunately I don't have the other alternatives installed - personally I'd choose the little robot guy - he good!

Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?
Then turn your G1 Galvatron on to the middle sound setting and push the button. The high pitched squeal will frighten small animals and make other people bleed from the ears.

Don't know about you but I find the most annoying thing in the world are topics that ask what the most annoying thing in the world is [/rant]

seriously. Linux is the way forward (once a few bugs have been sorted out like making it easier to install files but it has a number of office style programs that are actually better than the microsoft equivalent and cost a fraction of the price (if u actually do buy them and not d/l them which u r allowed to by law)

also the only good thing about the man is asking him stupid stuff "What colour is rumble", "Who became Cyclonus" and "where was Snarl in the movie"

Well, the simplest thing to do is simply not install the Office Assistant in the first place... but if you have 2000 you can a) hide the little bugger, and b) turn it off through the options. You could also try Add/Remove programs in Control Panel and see if it lets you remove individual components.

I loathe that thing; if I want to read the help, I'll read the help.

Linux is great if you're not a computer newie; however, I still pretty much am, despite being pretty in-depth with M$ OSes...

Microsoft Word is inherently evil.

I refuse to use it on principal. I even went so far as to installing my home (cough'licensed'tothreedifferendpeoplecough) version of WordPerfect at work so I didn't have to touch the bloody thing.

If you're in the UK you can make it more legit by picking up some very favourably priced OEM software here: http://www.cdromcellar.com/

edit: Word isn't that bad... it's just that 97 is the same as 2000 for 99% operations, yet takes up about four times as much space due to bloatcoded core suite resources...

WordPerfect 8, as far as I can see, is one of the most bugged products ever, or the version which ships with lots of motherboards these days is, anyway.
