Hi.

You can see here several ways of uninstall office ->Remove Office

Probably you will use the manual way.

or application version.. remember there are two versions currently on there, office 2007 and office 2010 and the confusing factor is that the 2010 is a 64 bit version.....

I´m a bit confuse now.

Do you uninstall the other offices through the manual process, and it worked well except the office 2010?
