I just installed MS office 2007 on a very old netbook. I only needed Word and Excel but I mistakenly installed the whole suite. How much of an impact will this have on the overall speed of the system?

Do you have any reason to suppose that it would have any speed impact? – pnuts Jun 14 '13 at 22:26

Open Controlpanel->Programs & Features, select Office 2007 and click change Features and uninstall the other not used features to free some HDD space.

It would certainly waste hard drive space, but speed shouldn't be a concern.

Uninstall the components you don't need and you're golden.
