removing office 2010 plus

I have gone to the control panel and tried to remove office. It keeps telling me that it could not remove all and when I try to install a new office it fails? Is there something out there that will totally remove this application?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this link to uninstall office first. Try Option 2 - Completely uninstall Office 2016 with the easy fix tool.

Have you tried the Office uninstall tool? https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Uninstall-Office-from-a-PC-9dd49b83-264a-477a-8fcc-2fdf5dbf61d8

That is supposed to remove every trace of Office.  If this is a POP email, make sure you backup the pst before doing this.

Both gurus were right. This removed all traces of office and I did install the new office.
