You could try using something like Revo Uninstaller, which is a super uninstaller and see if that works. You can get it here.

Office 2010 Uninstall

As far as uninstalling 2010 Beta, it is the program from Hell. I was in the same boat when I went to install the RTM. I'll tell you what I used and it finally worked.
There will be more than one step to this. First you need a couple of files.
1. Ripoutoffice2007.zip (can be found by doing a search on the web)
2. Ms Install cleaner, msicuu2.exe. (can be found by doing a search on the web)

There is another one that you can use if you like. It is named clean2cr.zip also available via the web.

First I ran the uninstall from Windows 7 it failed just as you mentioned. I then used ripoutoffice2007 it worked on the 2010 Beta. Then I ran the MS Install cleaner. Ir got some more of it.

Wait, you are not done. I went through my directory tree and removed some stray files. Wait, you are not done. In Windows 7 there is more than one directory with Office entries. So you will have to check everywhere.

Now the final thing I done was regedit and search for Office. Found several entries. Two of which would not delete. But evidently they did not impede the 2010 Install.

If all else fails you can try this mish-mash. Good Luck

you still have some "old bits" of beta installed. It took me several hours to clean out every remnant. Sort of seek and destroy. Once you get everything cleaned out it will install

Do you think it would just be easier to do a fresh install?

I also have installed/unistalled about 50+ programs since i installed windows 7. And would like to know what all those programs are that r only <1MB-5MB

If it's going to take more than an hour or two to fix, and everything I've read about getting rid of the beta version suggests it is, reinstalling windows and all your programs would probably be much faster and less frustrating
