MS Office shows 64bit install but is actually 32bit.

I have a Windows Server 2008R2 machine running as a Remote Desktop server. I had installed MS Office 64bit for my users and then discovered that we needed 32bit for some program compatibility issues.
I uninstalled MS Office 64bit and installed 32bit. When users open MS Outlook, it says "Configuring MS Office 2013 64bit" on a splash screen and then opens. When I go into the program and look at it, it says the version is 32bit.

What I suspect happened is that a user might have had Outlook open when I did the uninstall and reinstall. My problem is that Office, especially Outlook is very slow and says "Not Responding" often.

Is there a way to remove any 64bit remnants?

Uninstall all instances of Office and start over.

You can try this fixit

Or use third party tools like revouninstaller or your uninstaller

Reboot after uninstalling the program.

Did a uninstall and reinstall. No joy.
Actually, what I ended up doing was turning on Caching on each profile. That worked famously.
