Your header refers to Norton 2005 - is that what U mean?

If it is Microsoft Office Powerpoint 2003 are U referring to the standalone full programme or the free Powerpoint viewer or do U wish to remove Powerpoint from Microsoft Office 2003 Suite?

Your header title is somewhat misleading. My reply refers to the content of your post, and not the title.

The file location is important, especially if your PC/laptop is a Dell (if not, then the following may not be applicable to you).

Having sorted out PPV 2003 (E-o-L), weeks previously, my latest scan of yesterday (25/11), threw it up again as E-o-L.

On examination, it turned out to be a version bundled with Dell MediaDirect **(see below), and therefore would not update in the normal way. A different approach is required.

** it seems strange that PSI has only found/reported this copy of PPV 2003 now - many weeks, after the normal file was first highlighted as E-o-L.

I just want to safely remove Micrsoft Office Powerpoint 2003, it says it at the end of life. I tried to update it, but it doesn't happen.

OK - that is an old set up file. Use the OPEN FOLDER option in PSI or navigate to that file then RIGHT CLICK & select delete.

Complete a full PSI rescan & it should be OK.
