How do I completely remove Office 2010 from Windows 7

I want to completely remove Office 2010 because I have a non-working Outlook (see https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29116050/Outlook-has-stopped-publishing-a-calendar-The-upload-of-Calendar-failed.html - no responses on that). I've used Programs and Features to uninstall Office 2010, then I reinstalled it. However, the newly installed Outlook is still finding the previous user account and is still trying to open the corrupt outlook.pst file. Why? How do I completely clean Office off this computer so it prompts me to create a new account, etc.>

Have you removed the outlook profile from the computer?

Go into Control Panel | Mail | delete the profile in question.
Create a new outlook profile (use a different name)

If this does not work you can do a brute force removal using registry.
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\

Hi There,

I've had your issue couple of times and always use this

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/uninstall-office-from-a-pc-9dd49b83-264a-477a-8fcc-2fdf5dbf61d8

sometimes it takes an hour sometimes more.

good luck :)

Thanks for all the comments. In fact, I wasn't wanting to remove all of Office, only Outlook, but that doesn't appear possible. Once installed the Program and Features > Microsoft Office Professional 2010 > Change, let's one make Outlook "unavailable", but that's not an uninstall and therefore can't be reinstalled that way.

I did remove Office, but my OP, probably badly worded, dealt with removing all settings, etc., including the Outlook profile. Apparently, the only way to do that is Control Panel > Mail > E-mail Accounts, and remove account, per yo_bee's suggestion. I did that after first exporting the user's Calendar and Contacts, then re-created the account and imported calendar and contacts. That all worked, but the user's color category settings are lost -- which is too bad because this user organized his universe around color categories.
