    Did you go to the Control Panel, then "Uninstall a progarm" and click on the entry for this newly install program?

    Hi, dave a...
    Yes, that's the 1st thing I did...and it sat there for about 10 min frozen with the messege "...configuring MS Beta blah blah...time remaining 15 sec...", then it told me sorry, but this could not be completed, try contacting MS support!
    So I tried it again 5 times after re-starting my computer, and every time, same thing!:mad:

    Did you have Office 2010 Beta installed before you installed this "Click to Run"?

    Yes. I just wanted to install MS Word only...but all I could find was this MS Office 2010 Click to Run "package": it had all the Office things...Excel, Word, etc. So, like a trusting idiot, I downloaded it...but then remembered that MS word 2007 did some damage to my system sometime back, so that's when I started TRYING to get it off my computer! And like I said, I've read a TON of sites with people saying the same thing! Would doing that process where you go back to a date when my system didn't have it do the trick? And what is that process?

    right buddy if you want to restore your system to an earlier time go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore,select a date that is in the bolder print to restore to a time before the problem.it will state what was installed/uninstalled on the selected date so search for the desired date,if it dosn't work you can restore back to today or keep trying any other dates

    Microsoft Word is not available as a stand-alone program. It's only part of a suite of applications. It's also not free. What you downloaded was a public beta, which means it's still buggy, and it will stop working in October.

    Try using Revo Uninstaller to remove Office.

    Also, please post in a regular, normal sized font. The huge bold font is difficult to read.
