Press Win key + E key then look for MSOFFICE and right click it and delete, You could do this using Search box. Then go to run Box from Start button, type in the Run Box Regedit press enter, go to Edit in the Menu, type in find Box MSOFFICE press enter then delete what it finds press F3 this takes you to next entry, You have to do this until you get to the end. Then use CCLEANER

In Regedit do not touch anything else or you may stop your computer from booting.
