Hi.

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

Probably you will use the manual way.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell┬« is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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.....

Did you give it a try with the manual solution that I pointed?

I┬┤m a bit confuse now.

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