    Removing Pre-Loaded Trial Software

    When I bought this computer it had Trial Versions of several Microsoft
    programs. One was MS Office 2007. I've tried to remove this and some of the
    other programs, and I get the "error code 2755", and cannot remove them. Some
    are sizeable and I would like to recover the space. Any ideas would be
    appreciated.

    Give this a try. Only took a few seconds on my system and dumped a whole
    lot of stuff. If I remember correctly, it also gave me the option to add or
    subtract whether I wanted to remove the items it found before exectution.

    You receive an "Internal Error 2755" or an "Exception code: C0000005
    ACCESS_VIOLATION" error message when you install Office 2000 or view the
    Setup log file for an earlier installation of Office

    Re: Removing Pre-Loaded Trial Software

    Before I go through this removal, I'm running MS Office 2003 Professional.
    Will this be affected?
    Also, I've checked to be notified when someone responds, which MS does and
    sends a link. When I try to go there, it doesn't take me anywhere. Any
    suggestions?? Obviously I'm new to The Communities Discussions.

    Re: Removing Pre-Loaded Trial Software

    I'm trying to uninstall:
    "Activation Assistant for the 2007 Microsoft Office Suite" which was on the
    machine when I purchased it. My OS is Vista Home Premium. When I try to
    uninstall through control panel, the full error msg is:
    "The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package.
    This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2755."

    I have installed MS Office Professional 2003, and since the 2007 was a trial
    offer I don't want to change.

    Re: Removing Pre-Loaded Trial Software

    You should have uninstalled ALL of Office 2007 Trial, before installing
    Office 2003!
    I am surprised 2003 even installed correctly, doing it the way you did.

    And you don't say what email program you are using .

    Safe Mode gives you access to the control panel and the 'remove programs'
    option.
