Can't Install/Remove Office 2007/10

Guys, I had Office 2007 installed before. It was working fine till I messed everything up.

So I tried to install Office 2010. 1st I removed each components of office 2007 with the help of Windows Install Clean Up utility. Even though it is not uninstalled completely. I'm attaching some screenshots.

Now when i try to run the Office 2010 Setup it gives some kind of error. I think these components need to be removed 1st before installing Office.
I hope i'll get a solution soon. :)

There are several other issues in my laptop. I'll discuss them one by one.

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

If it were my computer, I think that I would use System Restore to bring Office back and then try this.

Then when done, I would download and use ccleaner to remove any remnants. The I think that you can install

I would begin by making a system restore point. I have seen situations where things have gone wrong and you have to return to right now.

@tezlewis. There i made a mistake. I didn't uninstall the product through control panel(Add/remove). Directly i used Clean up utility tool. Also, since the system restore images take a lot of space so i delete all d system restore images. I'm at work now, will check if there is an old system restore image present.
