    Attempting to "uninstall" microsoft office starter 2010


    I "installed" microsoft office starter 2010 on my computer. After a week, I have not been able to open any programs affiliated with microsoft office starter due to click 2 run configuration failure. I was wanting to "uninstall" mso starter due to all the hassles with the program so I did a system restore with a date prior to the "installation." Will this completely remove mso starter from my hard drive?

    Just microsoft office 2010 pops up. I'm assuming the computer is back to the original state without starter on there?

    "Just microsoft office 2010 pops up".....

    does it work? can you launch Microsoft Office 2010?
    if you already had this program installed....why did you install the 'starter' edition?


    IF it launches and it's the 'starter' edition...then it's NOT gone---try using the uninstaller

    nope I never installed microsoft office onto the computer. I sent a ms word document to my computer (from another computer) and attempted to open it thinking it would open up in wordpad. Instead a box opened up asking if I wanted to: activate microsoft office, purchase mso or use starter. I chose starter (since I didn't want to purchase anything) and that's where it all began...

    now, when I click on microsoft office 2010 the same initial screen pops up: activate, purchase or use starter. So I'm assuming starter is then off the computer.

    MSO Starter came preinstalled on your computer. You don't have to purchase anything. From Microsoft:
