Windows 7: How do I exit a loop-install of office 2003 and then uninstall it

How do I exit a loop-install of office 2003 and then uninstall it

Bascally, I tried to replace office 2003 with a more recent version and found an .iso file on the internet. The instalation went smooth and the program worked fine, but the problem is that I mounted the iso with DAEMON tools, which came together with a browser hijacker called yessearches. I tried to remove it using this method, but at step 2 my computer couldn't connect to the internet. I called my mobile provider but they couldn't help me as it appeared the problem was that adw cleaner changed things in the registry. So I went to an earlier restore point but now office 2003 keeps trying to install all the time even if I cancel it and I cannot uninstall. What can I do to uninstall office 2003?

Take a good read here. I think it is what you are looking for.

@Layback Bear: The problem was not uninstalling yessearches, the problem was that I tried removing yessearches and after getting to step 2 I could no longer connect to the internet because adw cleaner appears to have made some registry changes. So I went to an earlier restore point and everything was fine except office 2003 kept reinstalling and telling me to install something what was on its original disk (which of course I no longer have it). Because of that I couldn't remove it.

@torchwood: in the meantime I found a gap and managed to uninstall it in the traditional way. But thanks for the program, it's really useful!

Where exactly are you download from?
I have never heard of AdwCleaner stopping a system from going to the internet.

yessearches probably changed setting within your system. Many infections will do that to try to stop you from going online to get help.

Have you verified your system is clean of infections?

I got adw cleaner straight from the link in that article. After doing the job, all I got while opening a new website was the message that the proxy server couldn't be accesed. So I called my mobile phone company and told them what happened and they said me to change the DNS and the IP adresses to automatic, but it didn't work. So I told them what happened before and they told me it might have been a registry change and that I have to reinstall my windows.

And yes, after that I made a full scan of the system.

For downloading AdwCleaner I recommend going to Bleeping Computer and ticking on this button. When I use this method I always get a clean download.

Another program that I use on demand when I'm checking for problems is Eset free online scans. It takes a while but I have found it to do a great job.

Free Virus Scan | ESET Online Scanner | ESET

Some instructions by our security expert Jacee.

  1. Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan

    1. Click on to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    2. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  4. Check
  5. Click the button.
  6. Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  7. Check
  8. Push the Start button.
  9. ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  10. When the scan completes, push
  11. Push , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  12. Push the button.
