I'm using a HP Pavillion Entertainment PC with VISTA OS. The program Office 2007 Student trial came with it too. It since has expired and prompts to be converted to a full program, this option won't let me, it doesn't work?? The program doesn't uninstall using the "add and remove" program either? I downloaded the Office Word 2010 Beta Click to Run Program. This ran for a while but now has stopped too?? It won't open, there's a popup that prompts to use the control pannel to "repair" it but that option isn't there? Only the uninstall part. I'm concerned to do this as I don't want to loose the doccuments that are there. I really need to get into my doccuments and be able to change then as I need too but once again the program won't function?

If this program gets deleted what will happen to the doccuments?

Anyone out there able to help me with this?

Thanks.

How did it delete the Office 2007? I wish it did that for me!! I for one have been trying to have the Office 2007 removed from my PC but too no avail?? Not even the 'Add and remove program" delets it?? The pop up I get states there's an installation error and I need to reinstall it using what ever medium it came in, be it a CD or otherwise. The only problem is the Office 2007 was a preinstalled program and it was only a trial?? Now it asks to be "converted", yet that option seams to be malfunctioning too!!?? Does this garbage ever end?? So now I can't even edit any of the documents I have in 'Word', hence my downloading the 'Beta 2010 Word'... as I said before, it's defunked too!??

I'll try this 'open Office' you suggest, free is good too!! And will let you know what happens! Thanks so much.

Your documents will not be deleted if you uninstall the program that created them (their icons may change as their association with the uninstalled (now absent program) will no longer be there, and you will need to install some suitable program that can open them to gain access (Word documents can be opened in Wordpad, though depending on the version of Word used to create them not all formatting or features may show properly).

For removal of programs that don't uninstall from add/remove (or indeed for any installed program), try Revo uninstaller:
