Having issues with my installation. I've tried man methods but an Error always occurs. It says something about my invalidity to install due to previous trial versions of microsoft office is already installed. The thing is, i have no office in my rig yet. I've tried installing trial versions then uninstalled it, but still the same problem occurs.

PLEASE I NEED SOLUTIONS!

Atleast knowing that im not the only one experiencing this would HELP A LOT!

Unfortunatley Office has a habit of cluttering the registry with unused keys... see here for the commands to retrieve those and uninstall them - you just require the last 5 characters to uninstall them.

Before doing this, back up the registry.

Windows key + R, type REGEDIT in the Open box. Click OK.Locate following Registry path:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER | Software | Microsoft
Delete the “Office” sub key if present. Click Yes button to confirm. Close Registry Editor

Select Run.. paste the path eg for 32bit... Untitled.png
(obviously change to Programs for 64 bit..) then hit OK

When in the folder - hold shift and right click - select open command window here from the context menu.

If not done already, download and run ccleaner.
Click the cleaner, analyze then run cleaner.
When done click Registry then Scan for issues. Does anything show up in the analysis.
