    Hi everyone,

    I'm having troubles un-installing my 60-day trial version of MS Office Standard Edition along with its "Microsoft Office Trail Tour" program that's on my desktop. I go through Control Panel into Add/Remove Programs.
    I get the same message for removing office...."This package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package."
    The Microsoft Office Trail Tour is nowhere in the Add/Remove Programs list, and when I delete the shortcut on my desktop i'm told that it's just a shortcut and won't remove the program and I should go to the Add/Remove Programs list to do it.......Please Help!!! Thank you in advance!! :)

    Now is this Office 2003 or Office 2007?? If it is Office 2003 , you could use Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and remove it. If its Office 2007, I dont think there is a cleanup util yet that can remove it and allow you to reinstall a full version or whatever suits you.

    Thanks for both responses! I used the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and that did the trick. Thanks again!
