Microsoft Support - How do I uninstall Office 2003, Office 2007 or Office 2010 suites if I cannot uninstall it from Control Panel?


This article covers Office versions 2003, 2007 and 2010. Additionally, there is an article that covers steps to manually remove Office 2007.For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 971179 How do I uninstall the 2007 Office suites if I cannot uninstall it by using the "Add or Remove Programs" feature?

You can uninstall the Microsoft Office system by going to the appropriate "Fix it for me" section that matches your version of Microsoft Office. The Fix It solutions below do not remove any Office program that was installed separately from the Office suite. For example, if you have Microsoft Office Professional 2007 and Microsoft Office Visio 2007 installed on your computer, the Fix It solution only removes Microsoft Office Professional 2007 from your computer. Visio 2007 will not be removed. Additionally, you must reboot your machine if you use one of the Fix it solutions below.


  • The wizard may be in English only; however, the automatic fix also works for other language versions of Windows.
  • If you are not on the computer that has the problem, save the Fix it solution to a flash drive or a CD and then run it on the computer that has the problem.
  • For users who are running a Windows 64-bit operating system please download and save the Fix It solution to your desktop and double-click and run it on your computer. If you try to run the solution directly from the article you will have problems running it correctly.


Sometimes Office gets unhappy and doesn’t want to uninstall. This Fix It should help with that…
