current status - no success

By newmarket2 ·
I've used Revo Uninstaller pro and had back/forth with their support and I'm still unable to reload Outlook after cleaning.
I've consulted some Knowledge Base articles which listed two registry folders to delete, but Revo removed them.
Clearly, there are remnants of outlook after all my attempts at uninstalling. One piece of evidence is that in the start menu, several office programs are highlighted (as I understand it, that means 'newly installed') but outlook and powerpoint are NOT highlighted, indicating that Windows thinks they were already there, even after all my uninstallation steps.
ps. this last time I ran the setup.exe, I ran as administrator - so that's not it.

try system restore

by databaseben In reply to current status - no succe ...

if the registry is corrupt, then you should execute a system restore point (an old one preferably), which will then re-instate former registry hives and office modules.

then see if the system is back to square one, before all the tinkering you tried.

afterwards, go to safe mode and try uninstalling office via add/remove programs control panel.
