MS Office 2010 Trial uninstall created many problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed the trial version of MS Office 2010 in Win XP Professional with SP3.

    When I uninstalled the trial through the add/remove menu, bad things happened:

    When then attempting to open my MS Word 2000, was given an error message it didn't exist with a prompt to install disk 1 of MS Office 2000.

    Finally got my MS Word 2000 to open but it stopped recognizing Firefox as default browser when opening html links.

    My boot time went up to about 2 minutes while displaying an absolutely blank screen prior to  displaying the "loading personal preferences" screen.

    Going back to a previous restore point did not solve the problems.

    Suggestion please.
