Hi :)
Ahh, sorry.  Most people seem to have reported great success using Revo uninstaller.  I have not 
tried it yet but i wonder if it's easy enough for a granny to use.  I think this is the main page

Actually most of the grannies and such that i know are former programmers or have learned a much 
higher level of computing skills than most people i bump into.  
Regards from
Tom :)

Thank you Tom.  I should have been precise.  For grandmas the confusing items aren't old folders, 
but menu shortcut icons.

The previous user ran some OOo uninstaller or Windows stock app remover (I guess), but it didn't 
wipe menu shortcuts.  When grandma clicks them they do exactly nothing.  In cases of remote field 
support I just do not want grandma playing with her Start menu!  Too much margin for error even for 
simple icon deletion.  She's as likely to delete the whole menu.  I was hoping for a web page to 
explain to grandma how to delete OOo icons and other stray stuff.

My tips to LibreOffice.

1. A web page for "Total OOo Uninstall," not just LibreOffice Install.

2. The LibreOffice Install web pages both advise and link to it.

2. Some kind of script to implement the instructions?  It hunts for the
usual suspects like old OOo icons and autodeletes or presents removal dialogs.

Myself, I *do not* want old OOo user prefs imported, but others may.

Windows has apps like Total Uninstall (Google it).  That's the goal post to me.

Thanks again!
