    I was wondering if any one knows how to remove a program
    completely. I wanted to remove my Office & Visual Basic Programs
    from my computer, so I can reinstall it again. Every time I try to
    reinstall it, it gives me a message saying that I already have this
    program on my computer.....

    Well, the only way to correctly remove a program, is to first make sure the program is not active when you set about removing it.
    So first shut it down.
    Then you go to Software add/remove, and uninstall it.
    It's also a good idea to reboot afterwards.

    If you do it any other way, you're almost sure to end up with an incompletely uninstalled program, which can cause you all kinds of grief...

    How did you remove Office, exactly?
