Windows 7: Can't uninstall Office 2013

Can't uninstall Office 2013

Hi,

I've recently installed MS Office 2013, but due to its uglyness, I'd rather work with MS Office 2010. So I tried to uninstall Office 2013 and everytime I click the uninstall button at the Control Panel, windows shuts down... Removing the files doesn't work either, I get the message that the file is already being used. Unlocking it with Lockhunter didn't work too.

So please help!

Regards,

Tom

I've never linked it to an account, but activated it by key.
