I'm on windows 7 pro I was installing office 2010 beta when my computer crashed, so I had to hit the reset button after this I am unable to install any kind of office (I tried 2007 also), I also tried to stop the office file services manually and try to install but no luck. Anybody knows what can I do ?

Do you have Windows System Restore enabled? That's my first step.

Microsoft has a tool to remove Office completely. I don't know if it works on newer versions though, and I wouldn't know where to start looking.

There's also that msizap.exe tool that might be able to help. You can Google for that. (Ignore this one. I meant the Windows Installer Cleanup Tool.)

Failing that, nuke the Office sections in the Registry, but make sure you back up before you try that.

Which part didn't help? – user3463 Dec 10 '09 at 13:48
cleanup tool, but now i'm trying to nuke all the register references – Omu Dec 10 '09 at 13:55
i cleaned the registry with windows 7 manager registry cleanup and still can't install office – Omu Dec 10 '09 at 13:58
I'm not familiar with Windows 7 Manager Registry cleanup. I was specifically referring to regedit.exe. – user3463 Dec 10 '09 at 14:30
