Have you tried a 3rd party uninstaller like Revo Uninstaller http://www.revouninstaller.com/ (free) to uninstall MSOffice. Although, a dickey MSOffice should not have disabled your Windows components, but see what happens, you?re trying to get rid of Office anyway and it might just free Windows again.
(WARNING RevoUI allows you to clean-up the registry of leftovers, USE WITH CAUTION, especially with integrated programs)
Hi everyone. I went into my control panel to access my add/remove programs to do a few things. To my surprise, I can't get past "Please wait while the list is being populated..."-And that's where it ends. I have tried to look into it a couple different ways and haven't gotten anywhere. I need to be able to get into add/remove programs so I can uninstall MS Office and reistall a new copy with valid license. Note: This could stem from a recent memory upgrade I did whereby once it was completed Microsoft won't recognize my MS Office XP Professional license and now I am unable to fully access these programs until I produce a "valid copy" which I have, but can't install until I remove the supposed "invalid copy"!!! Really need some tech savvy help. Thank you in advance for ANYTHING you can offer.
