I previously had installed the Microsoft Outlook pst backup utilitly, but now can't find it.
I copied my outlook files into a new profile on my computer, then wanted to do a backup once things were set up, but the backup was no longer listed under the FILE drop down.

I attempted to download & reinstall but got a mesage telling me it was already installed and had to be removed first.
When I attempted to unisntall, it tells me it can't be found.
I looked for it under control panel - add / remove - but it sn't listed.  
Hmmm.

Best and easiest tool out there is Microsoft Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.

Didn't change a thing

Did you use the Windows Installer cleanup utility or Revo Uninstaller?  The latter does wonders.

I used the windows installer cleanup .
Revo, I am not familiar with.
