Tips To Manually Uninstall Microsoft® Office 2010
What are the various ways to manually uninstall Microsoft Office 2010?
There might be several issues happening in Microsoft Office leading to the uninstallation of Microsoft Office 2010 in your PC. Sometimes, Microsoft Office 2010 users are not able to click the 'Print' button as it is grayed out in it. Another problem is that the document layout differs in Windows 7 and Windows Vista/Server 2008. Customers might not get these fonts as they are system protected on these Operating Systems. The Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) sometimes does not sync with Microsoft Outlook 2010. This too annoys the users. This is because QuickTime movies are not supported for compression. So, when you try to compress QuickTime movies in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, you might get an error message saying “Unsupported” in the Media dialog.
Different ways to manually uninstall Microsoft Office 2010:
- The Uninstaller
- Removal Tools
- Removal of folders and files
The only real way to completely remove Microsoft Office 2010 from your system is to do it manually. All you have to do is to open up the program manager in your PC. Then for Windows XP users, it is under 'Control Panel.' Then click 'Add or Remove Programs'. For Windows Vista and Windows 7 users, it is under 'Control Panel' and then click 'Programs and Features'. Once you are there, look for the Microsoft Office 2010 entry and uninstall it from the PC.
Use the removal tools
For this method, you would have to use three tools to get the job done. First of all, download Remove Microsoft Office 2007 (it works for 2010 also) and run it. The tool would eliminate all the traces of Microsoft Office it could find and then restart the PC. After restarting, it would again search for any remaining traces before showing you the success notification. If there are any traces left behind, use Microsoft’s Windows Installer Clean Up Utility. Install the Clean Up tool and run it and remove all the processes connected to Microsoft Office 2010. You should download, install Cleaner, and then run the Registry Integrity scan. Fix all the issues it finds but make sure you back up when it prompts you to and then reboot.
This method requires patience along with full care and concentration. This is because if nothing else has worked, you are only left with one choice, which is to manually remove all the files and registry entries from the system. First, you have to remove Windows Installer packages from the Microsoft Office 2010 system (if any), then stop the Microsoft Office Source Engine service and remove the remaining Microsoft Office 2010 installation folders. Now remove Microsoft Office 2010 installation files and then finally remove the registry subkeys of the Microsoft Office 2010 system. If you are technically sound, it would not be a big task. If it isn't, take the help of a computer expert.
