1) Icons for Office 2007 wouldn’t display properly. If I opened a folder with office docs for example the white sheet of paper with the top right corner dog eared containing an application window inside it. The shortcuts that appear in the start menu had no icons and wouldn’t work when clicked.
2) I installed COMODO firewall on recommendation from a user here over Zone alarm and it blocked my computer from the network and internet. I can’t uninstall the program. It’s not in the Programs list in control panel and it’s not in the programs list of Ccleaner. I had to disable a COMODO property in the Wireless networks settings to get my network/internet back.
3) I have since tried to uninstall Office to see if a reinstall will do anything to help the icons. I have no files to lose so I thought I may as well but when I press uninstall in the Programs section of Control panel it will return unsuccessful. When I press change it will gather files. The window would disappear and nothing would happen.
Office seems to still work but the icons will annoy me and the fact the installer won’t work properly is a concern.
Any ideas how to fix anything?
EDIT: Looking at the Program remove page in Control Panel, there are a number of programs which are iconless. They, including Office, only have a dog eared white page as an icon.
Would the fact that I have used AusLogics Degfrag have anything to do with it?
You're not actually administrator in Vista as such, unless you take some steps to enable access to the true "administrator" account. Re-install Comodo (if possible) and it ought to add its un-install information to the Programs and Features list for you to remove it properly. Read this to remove Office 2007 (click here) and re-install it afresh.
CCleaner uses the same program list as Programs & Features, and only uses the program's own uninstaller for removal (as does Revo initially, but it does an actual search for leftover files and registry entries).
