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.

Already did it - a couple times.
Didn't change a thing

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

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I used the windows installer cleanup .
Revo, I am not familiar with.
I'll do a web search for it?
