    I downloaded/installed revo.uninstaller and did find the Office Enterprise 2007 in the list of programs on my computer. I proceeded to unistall that program and it was going thru the various stages of uninstalling.

    The uninstaller went thru and found leftover registry items, files, folders, etc to the tune of several thousands and thousands of items. I stopped the process at that point because I was not sure what the info was telling me, i.e. only those items that are bold faced will be deleted. Do I "select All" and will the system only delete the bold face items or will it delete everything? Or is the safest, surest bet to stick this phase and just go on to the next uninstall phase and let those items stay on the hard drive even tho the program itself would probably be uninstalled? Could there be problems with deleting that would affect other programs or my system? I have heard horror stories that messing with registry items could have bad results. If I leave these items on, would there be problems with downloads/installs of similar programs??? Thanks for your attention to this matter and support.

    This is a retransmission - appears question sent previously did not go out to you. I downloaded/installed the revo.uninstaller per your recommendation. In the list of programs on my computer I did find Office Enterprise 2007. I proceeded with the uninstall and each step worked perfectly. Then I got to a step with a window that stated something to the effect that said these are the leftovers that were found which included registry items, files, etc. Not really understanding this, I stopped the uninstall at this point. The notice said that only the items in bolded face would be deleted. Do I use the "select all" box or do I have to check each bolded face entry item by item. As it was working there were thousands upon thousands of these items. Is this step necessary or can I ignore and proceed to the next step????? If I proceed is there any harm in leaving these thousands of items on the hard drive even though the software would be removed. The reason I ask is because I have heard some horror stories about trying to remove registry items. If I leave them on the hard drive, could they possibly cause problems when trying to install similar programs in the future???? Your advice please. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

If the version of windows installed on your computer is not activated you would face issues to use any applications once the product is expired.

But if you have an issue with office programs with an error 25004 on an activated version of windows
Then the reason might be corrupted installation of office 2007 on the computer.
Uninstall office 2007 manually from the computer then
re-install it and check if it helps.

Failuret o office 2007 update sp2

You can use "your uninstaller" to remove registry entries from your registry. Because of the orphan keys you won't be able to install it again. Try that. If you couldn't update and if it says package is corrupted (What is the media that you have stored the SP2?) it may be due to a memory problem. May be the installer. Did you apply SP1 earlier?
Check your system whether its capable of installing such sp s or software (large ones) to check whether there is a problem with the extraction (memory) or your windows installer . Hope this would help.
If so please rate :)
Thank You
Good luck

Setup Error for Office 2007 Enterprise Edition.

I would try a third-party uninstaller such as the one found at (bear in mind I have not tried it myself).
Since you have bought Office, Microsoft is obliged to give you support, so I suggest that you contact them to avoid any unpleasant surprises while trying to uninstall/reinstall things.

Adobe Acrobat 8 does not integrate with MS Office 2007 programs

Then do a search for 'all files and folders' - search for both Acrobat 6.0 and then Acrobat 7.0, with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those related files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you uninstall any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)

Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling.
