How to install Office 2010 After Once Upgrading From Office 2003 and Corrupted Installation

Once I upgraded Office 2003 to Office Home and Student 2010. Then, I decided to install Office Home and Business 2010. When I tried to uninstall Home and Student 2010, I got an error message saying an office 2003 installation on your computer is corrupted and set up cannot continue, remove or repair the Office 2003 products and re-run setup. I reinstalled the 2003 and uninstalled it, then I  could uninstall the Home and Studnet 2010. Although there was no Office installed, when I tried to install the Home and Business 2010, I got the same error message about Office 2003 installation corruption. Then I installed the 2003 and uninstalled it as it worked for uninstalling Home and Student. However, I tried to install Home and Business, I got the exact same message as above. I don't know if upgrading from 2003 to 2010 changed the registry and it still affected it.
Please help!!!!

if you have been using the Windows Uninstall/Remove Programs feature, it does not remove everything.  You need to get back to square 1 before re-installing, by doing a manual uninstall of all prevously installed ms office versions as discussed in the links below:

When I was checking Office files in program folders, I suspected Office Project 2003 and Visio 2007 miight caused this issue. Therefore, I uninstalled them and then I could the Office 2010.
