How to unstall a microsoft word?


Hi johncarl_aba,
Typically, when you first try to use a 2007 Office feature that is not installed, the 2007 Office program installs the feature automatically. If the feature that you want is not automatically installed, follow these steps:
1. Exit all programs. 2. Click Start. 3. If you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7, copy and paste (or type) the following command in the Search programs and files box, and then press ENTER: appwiz.cpl
If you are running Windows XP, click Run, copy and paste (or type) the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER: appwiz.cpl
4. Click the name of the Microsoft Office Edition 2007 that you want, and then click Change. 5. Select the option Add or Remove Features and then click Continue. 6. Select the features that you want to install, and then click Continue to finish the installation.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using fixya

Tip

Add Remove Programs list is blank -- Windows 2000


Usually It happens due to some virus activity or any corruption in system files. So when you go to Add Remove Programmes, It shows nothing but a blank space.

· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 6.0 installed, repair Internet Explorer 6.0:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.
· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5 installed, repair Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.

If the Add/Remove Programs tool still does not function properly, shows no content, or if you want to try to fix this issue without upgrading to later versions of Internet Explorer, check the following registry keys to make sure that they contain entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache
Note If the previous registry keys are blank, the Add/Remove Programs tool may also be blank.

Use the command line REGSVR32 [path\filename] to register each of the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Appwiz.cpl
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtml.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Jscript.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msi.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\Oledb32.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ado\Msado15.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msdart32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtmled.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Mswstr10.dll [not registerable]


If the Add/Remove Programs tool displays incomplete information or is blank, verify the file dates. Where possible, register the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Gdi32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\User32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Msvcrt.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Ole32.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Shlwapi.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Imm32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Indicdll.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Urlmon.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Version.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Lz32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Comctl32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Clbcatq.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Oleaut32.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Mlang.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Shell32.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Shdoclc.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\NetapI32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Secur32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Netrap.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Samlib.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Ws2_32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Ws2help.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Wldap32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Dnsapi.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Wsock32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Plugin.ocx
%systemroot%\System32\Wininet.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Crypt32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Msasn1.dll [not registerable]

%systemroot%\System32\Imgutil.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Cscui.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Cscdll.dll [not registerable]


Now Restart your system.. and Voila !!
Your problem is gone..

Do START, RUN then type in C:\WINDOWS\system32\appwiz.cpl

Most programs also have a separate uninstall program in their program group - Do START, ALL PROGRAMS, select the program group you want to uninstall and see if there is an uninstall icon.

Windows XP Control Panel


Hi,

1) I am assuming that you are referring to the:

"Add or remove Programs" icon.


2) The corresponding control panel applet is:

...\windows\system32\appwiz.cpl


3) It is run beneath the Windows 32-bit DLL launcher:

...\windows\system32\rundll32.exe

This is the task you will see in the Task Manager.


4) You can run this control applet manually by using:

START ---> RUN: appwiz.cpl


If the RUN command is not on the START MENU,
you will have to re-enable it:

RIGHT click on the taskbar and chose properties,
-----> Start menu ---> customize ----> advanced ----->
scroll down to the RUN command item and put a check
mark beside it.


5) But first you want to make sure the file is legit, not a virus.
Locate the file, right-click, chose properties and...check

The copy right, date and size:

Size = 549.888 bytes (on XP pro SP2)
Date = August 4, 2004, 12:56:58 AM
File Version = 5.1.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158)
Company = Microsoft

You may need to go into your Windows Explorer settings
and enable the display of hidden and system files.


6) Scan the file with several anti-viruses


7) This file is protected by system restore and by the Windows
File Protection System

This means that if you try to delete or replace it, Windows
will instantly undo all you efforts. If a virus succeeds in
damaging this file, however, the damage will stick and
resist repair.


8) If the file is rogue or damaged, try to download a bonifide
replacement. Windows Installation disk or microsoft is
the best. Be ware of rogue sites, giving away viruses.

Then

Delete all instances, in all directories, of Appwiz.cpl

You will get some warnings from windows, ignore them all.
It may also give you the option to replace the file from the
installation or service pack disk.

Put back the GOOD appwiz.cpl into the system32 directory,
reboot windows and it should work.
