Recently my Office Starter 2010 stopped working and asked to be repaired, I do so but still is not working.

Is there some way to uninstall and install Office Starter 2010? I searched on Google but nothing more precise about this issue. I know that is not a license problem because it says that Office Starter does not expire.

So I wonder what could be causing this error?

    Have you tried going into the control panel, finding it, and then repairing from there? – soandos Jan 10 '12 at 16:20
  • If you have the media and license keys at hand I'd recommend uninstalling Office, running a reg cleaner such as ccleaner.com and then reinstalling Office. – Moif Murphy Jan 10 '12 at 16:22
  • @MoifMurphy Office starter only has a "CD key" if you're an OEM and buy at least 1000 licenses at a time – Canadian Luke Jan 10 '12 at 16:27
  • Can you further explain how 'it's not working'? What happens when you try to run it? If there are error messages, what are they? Is anything reported in the Windows Event Logs? Have you performed disk checks (chkdsk), and/or system file checks (sfc /scannow)? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jan 10 '12 at 16:38
  • I uninstall with Revo Uninstaller and CCleaner, how install it again now ? – Valter Silva Jan 10 '12 at 17:05

Just uninstall it and reinstall it.

If you're in Windows 7 then go to Control Panel then Programs and Features.

If you're in Windows XP then go to Control Panel then Add/Remove Programs.

Then look for Microsoft Office 2010 and click Uninstall.

To re-install:

Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Edition

Follow the guide at that link above.

    but how re-install office starter ? – Valter Silva Jan 10 '12 at 17:04

Here's how I fixed the problem:

  1. go to Control Panel, then Programs and Features
  2. select "Uninstall or change a program"
  3. select Microsoft Word Starter 2010, and select the Change option
  4. select OK when the dialogue box appears

Make sure you connected to the internet in order to complete the process.
