I have windows xp home edition SP3.   I installed Microsoft Office 2010 version without uninstalled office 2003 first.  I can't uninstall Office 2010 now from Add/Remove programs. It did let me uninstall Office 2003, but when I try to reinstall Office 2003 my Outlook doesn't work at all.  Any one have any ideas of how to unistall Office 2010 so I can get back to Office 2003 when all was working correctly.  I have tried to do a system restore to prior to that date, but no luck.  I may have to just reimage my Hard Drive and start over. Any help would be much appreciated.

this program did the trick.  Once I had the 2010 uninstalled i installed Office 2003 but ran into MAPI32 issues when starting Outlook.

I had to rename all my Mapi files to *.old and then it worked... Thanks.
