Can't uninstall Office 2007 beta 2

I have tried to uninstall office 2007 beta 2 but keep getting the error 1316 and the following explination " Cannot read file from file C:\WINDOWS\Installer\ProWW.msi. Check your connection to the network or cd-rom drive. For other potential solutions to the problem, see C:\DOCUME~1\MYNAME~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\OWP368.temp\Office.en-us\SETUP.CHM.

Please help me get this removed from my computer.

System Restore to before you installed it.

Then I'll lose all of the documents and programs I have installed at the moment will I not?

Only programs and settings (not documents) installed after the date you restore from.

Thanks for the advice but I done a google search and found a forum on a website regarding this problem and went step by step to manually remove it then through the registry . I am never downloading any beta software like that again its a real pain on getting it removed.

We all live and learn. I put it on for about 10 minutes, had a quick play then system restored to get rid of it. I'm getting too old to run Beta software I think, especially as I need a properly working version of Excel at all times.

Did you even try to uninstall the beta version of Office through add or remove programs or just system-restore it automatically?

I just system restored - I'm lazy!
