Windows 7: Office Click-to-Run 2010 won't uninstall

Windows 7 Home Premium 64
Office Click-to-Run 2010 won't uninstall

I have a new machine running Win 7 Home Premium 64, which came preinstalled with Office 2010 Starter. I'm trying to uninstall all Office software, but Office Click-to-Run 2010 won't uninstall.

When I try to uninstall it from the Programs and Features screen, I get an error message that reads, "The action could not be completed. Try the action again. If the action continues, contact Microsoft Product Support."

I have tried the Microsoft Fix it for Me wizard (How do I uninstall Office 2003, Office 2007 or Office 2010 suites if I cannot uninstall it from Control Panel?) to no avail, and I've tried Revo Uninstaller, which removes Office Click-to-Run from the Add or Remove Programs screen but does not uninstall it cleanly.

There are two other Office 2010 entries in the Programs and Features list: Microsoft Office Starter 2010 - English and Microsoft Office 2010. These uninstall without any issue, but Office Click-to-Run 2010 won't budge.

Any ideas?

Hello, welcome to Seven Forums.
Download & install Revo Uninstaller, it will get the job done & clean up anything that would be left by the program after the normal uninstall.

If Revo won't play ball you could try Zsoft.

ms office click to run 2010

Though it appears as an installed program under programs and features, ms office click to run 2010 is anything but an uninstallable program: it is a reference to a local disk drive, reserved and possibly expandable, and protected as local drive Q. This partition (if that's what is) is impregnable. My advice, let it be.
