Go ahead and delete Office12 folder. If you are having problems in that, just install 2010, it'll probably take care of that issue.

do you have Windows 7 32bit or 64 bit? for 32 bit i recommend Unlocker which the poster above me linked to, for 64 bit however you will need to use a different program, i use Lockhunter: LockHunter is a free 64/32 bit tool to delete files blocked by any processes
