Office uninstall

I have failed so far to get Office 2010 installed. I will attack it again some time in the future. But I was going to post this because I see numerous threads about uninstalling various versions of Office.

I used CCleaner.....It doesn't get it all
I looked at Revo but I couldn't decide which file to drop on it. Office has numerous programs (word, excel, etc.) So I skipped Revo.
I deleted a bunch of entries manually in the register. Still wasn't completely successful.
I deleted manually via explorer all the files and directories that I could find.
I used a file from MS Technet cleancr2. It didn't get it all.
Finally I used a file from MS Technet called msicuu2.exe which cleaned up some install info.
After all of that 2010 install no longer detected another Office installation and continued on in the install untill the very end when it failed. Haven't determined what the error is yet.

Windows 7
This is what worked for me

I originally tried to uninstall the Office 2010 beta, and it was taking forever.
So I hit the cancel button, and it cancelled correctly.....or so it seemed.

I rebooted my machine and then went back in to the Control Panels in order to re-run the Office 2010 beta uninstallation. Well, the item had now disappeared from the list of software, and there were heaps of Office 2010 references left on my system.

Running the Office 2010 RTM version wouldn't go through, since it complained about a prior beta release already being installed which needed to first be removed.

So I dropped into Safe Mode and hacked away at the registry and deleted the program files, but still no joy.

Anyway, in the end I ended up finding the following article.
Uninstall Microsoft Office 2010 Completely

I followed the advice given, and this successfully removed all references to the Office 2010 beta.

I'm now running the Office 2010 RTM version without any issues.
