    Would help to know how you are trying to uninstall and what error messages you may be receiving when trying to uninstall.

    first i tried it with the software remove option in windows configurations then it gave an error the next thing I did was trying to remove it via tunedup clean registry then with ccleaner remove the registry then I manually removed the office 12 map and throwed it in de bin and then emptied the bin. But nothing helped. Sorry for my broken english.

    Well, that probably wasn't a good idea what you just did. If you were tyring to uninstall the program thru Control Panel or the Office Installer Setup program and got an error message, the first thing you probably should have done is stopped and started researching the error message you received.

    Now that you have hosed the registry and tried manually removing the software with complete disregard for documenting what you did, I don't think there is going to be much we can do.

    What happens now when you try to install Office 2007.

    Do you still have the Beta 2 install files. If so try running that.

    iTunes has a Backup feature. You can search for the article on Apples website or just google search for it.
