De-installing office 2010 professional corrupting my windows 7 profileLocked
When I installed office 2010 I kept my office along side just in case. Near the end of the trial periode I decided to de-install office 2010.
When the de-installation was completed and the system done a reboot I was left with two major problems as a result of the de-installation of office 2010. Since office 201 has over written my office 2007 outlook I had to install outlook again and it too me over an hour to get outlook back as it was before installing office 2010.
A bigger problem is that my profile has been corrupted by the de-installation proces of office 2010. When I open for instance a excel worksheet or a word document it takes more ten ten seconds to open. Before office 2010 the files opened in just one or two seconds.
I’ve been searching the internet to see if I could find a solution to my problem but nothing realy.
The only suggestion I found to solve this issue i to make to more accounts and copy and paste the profile directories from the problem profile to the new one. I done that in the assumption that the new profile would be exactly the same as the corrupted one, but that is not the case. The desktop needs modifying, IE missing all the extra’s I had in the corrupted profile etc.
This is a typical Microsft showing their incompetence to hire the right people to program a setup routine and to make sure to leave the user profile intact or before starting a setup routine make as a standard a backup of everything they change including the user profile.
The fact that they send me a email with a manual de-installation procedure of office 2007 that involves many steps fiddeling with the registry and so on is outrages. As they obviously aware of their faulty de-installation routines they should have make a little program that saves the customer the hassel to do it all manually.
I hope somebody knows a better sollution to repair a corrupted user profile in Windows 7 ultimate.
