Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista and Windows 7

BTW-- the error message says

Some default settings in Microsoft Office 2000 setup do not work properly on a Windows Terminal Server.  To install Office on Terminal Server, you must use the instructions and tools available in your Office 2000 Resource Kit or a http://www.microsoft.com/Office/ORK/.

So is there a way to unistall it now or fix that error message?

Revo will start the programs default uninstaller<<<which is failing for you.....then it will scan the registry and files and folders and allow you to delete. It is very thorough and I have used it many times successfully.
