All I need from MS Office package is "Word" and "Powerpoint". When I selected those two applications to be installed instead of the whole office package. But after the installation, what I saw is that the setup has installed a lot of other small applications along with those two applications I wanted to have.

Is there any way to reinstall office without getting all those softwares installed?

Looking at the list you posted...and if you selected to only install Word & Powerpoint...how do you know that the items in the list are not required for Word and Powerpoint to run properly?

Word and Powerpoint are not just single files...other things need to be installed as well. And if you look carefully...Excel & Outlook were not installed...so the "whole package" was not installed.

They are all helper applications for elements of the Office suite and are needed components

Thanks for both replies. I usually expect basic functions from the word and I started worrying about when I saw a set of new apps in the application folder as I installed these two.
