Google Uninstall Office 2011 For Mac

It is not uncommon that one day you find a software application just stops working. The most basic way to attempt to solve the problem is by reinstalling the program. Hopefully, the setup will replace any corrupted files or settings that prevent the program from working properly. Sometimes a reinstall won’t work because the setup installer requires you to uninstall the program first before you can perform a new installation.

All is good if you can uninstall and reinstall, but there are times when you cannot repair or uninstall the program, then you’re stuck with installed software that doesn’t run. Depending on the installation process, some easy ones can be removed by manually deleting the program’s folder, shortcut and the obvious registry entries. However, some uninstalls can be far more tricky.

A bigger and more sophisticated application like Microsoft Office has thousands of registry entries and files scattered across the system. It must be properly uninstalled or else it can affect system stability and prevent reinstallation later on. Being such a large piece of software, a partially working or non working install of Office could also have an effect on other software that is relying on Office tools or components to function.

If you need to completely uninstall a version of Microsoft Office such as 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and even 365, here we have a few methods to do it.

Important Note: No matter which method you use to uninstall Microsoft Office from your computer, it is always advisable to create a full backup image first so that it is possible to restore back the changes when things go wrong.

Uninstall Microsoft Office from Control Panel or Settings

Of course, the first method that you should always use to uninstall software such as Microsoft Office is from the official uninstaller. This will be found in Programs and Features in the Control Panel or Apps in Windows 10 Settings.

Select the version of Microsoft Office from the list and click the Uninstall button. You will be asked to confirm if you want to remove Microsoft Office from your computer. Click either the Yes or Uninstall button to proceed with the uninstallation.

If the built-in uninstaller fails to remove Microsoft Office from your computer, then refer to other methods shown below.

Remove Microsoft Office using the Setup File

Running the setup executable file that is used for installation can also trigger the option to remove the Microsoft Office installed on the computer. Open the optical drive letter or disc image to view where the install files are located.

Running the setup.exe will open a window giving you the option to add or remove features, repair, remove, or enter a product key.

Uninstalling from the Setup executable on the disk doesn’t work for all versions of Office. We tested the installers for 2013, 2010, and 2007 and they do have the remove option, 2016 didn’t have it.

Uninstall Office with the Microsoft Office Uninstall Support Tool

After discontinuing or making some other Office uninstall tools unavailable, Microsoft has come out with another utility to handle the task. The Office uninstall support tool says it can completely uninstall Office 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and various versions of Office 365. It’s worth noting the tool did not detect our Office 2007 install during testing but did work with 2010, 2013 and 2016.

Download the tool from Option 2 on the Microsoft webpage and double click it, .NET Framework 4.6 or higher is required on Windows 7. It will first install the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant of which the uninstall support tool is a part. Run the executable again and select the version of Office that has been detected, then click Next. Read the warning, check the box and click Next.

After some minutes, the process will complete and you will be prompted that the computer is going to be restarted.

The tool will popup after a reboot with the results of the uninstall process with some links to help you reinstall Office if you don’t have a CD/DVD/ISO/IMG with the install files. The Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant will need to be uninstalled from Programs and Features or Settings > Apps.

Delete Microsoft Office using FixIt

FixIt used to be a useful set of free troubleshooting tools by Microsoft to repair a variety of common problems including uninstalling Office. Sadly it was discontinued in 2018 in favor of the built in Windows troubleshooters. FixIt’s came as small tools that each focused on one or two specific tasks so you will need to use the correct version for your installed version of Microsoft Office and Windows.

To use one of these tools, download it and double click on the diagcab or MSI file. All you have to do is essentially click Yes or the Next button a few times while the tool attempts to find and completely remove the Office installation.

Uninstall Office 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016

From any Windows: O15CTRRemovev2.diagcab

Uninstall Office 2013, 2016 or Office 365

From any Windows: O15CTRRemove.diagcab

Uninstall Office 2010

From Windows 8/10:
From Windows 7 and below: MicrosoftFixit50450.msi

Uninstall Microsoft Office 2011 Mac

Uninstall Office 2007:

From Windows 8/10:
From Windows 7 and below: MicrosoftFixit50154.msi

Uninstall Office 2003:

From Windows 8/10:
From Windows 7 and below: MicrosoftFixit50416.msi

The tool might scan for Office a couple of times before finishing but just keep pressing Next until you reach the completed window and the Close button, then restart the computer.

Clean Up Microsoft Office using OffScrub VBScript

OffScrub is an Office Removal Utility created in VBScript by Microsoft that is found in many of the Fix it tools mentioned above. You’d have to extract the MSI or diagcab file of the Fix it tool to obtain the OffScrub .vbs file using a third party tool such 7-Zip (for the diagcab files only) or Universal Extractor. It’s not found in the top link of the FixIt tools above but is available in the others.

Some of the advantages of using OffScrub are the ability to remove Office standalone products which you would not be able to do if you were running the Fixit tool and also the possibility of automation using the command line. For the more advanced user, you can also see the different removal stages in real time which could be helpful in pinpointing the cause of uninstallation problems.

Erase Microsoft Office using Remove Office 2007 / 2010

A software developer called “Refuse to Suffer” created two free dedicated tools to clean up Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010 when the normal uninstallation procedure fails. The developer and its website are gone now but the tools still exist. All you need to do is run the programs as admin and click the Go button.

There are a few things you should know before using the Remove Office 2007 or Remove Office 2010 tool. First of all, the tool automatically restarts your computer after completing the removal process so make sure you’ve already saved and closed any other running files. Also, it should not be used when you have two different versions of Microsoft Office installed on the computer because the tool isn’t programmed to keep the important commonly shared files.

Get rid of Microsoft Office using a Third Party Uninstall Utility

While there are many third party software uninstaller utilities, we recommend one of the best around which is Revo Uninstaller Pro. It’s reliable and has a feature to analyze leftover files/folders/registry entries based on a given path, and automatically creates a backup so that the forced uninstall can be restored. The only drawback is Revo Uninstaller Pro is shareware but it offers a 30 day fully functional trial.

1. Download Revo Uninstaller Pro and install.

2. Run Revo Uninstaller Pro and double click the Office entry in the list. If you can’t find an entry for Office, click the “Forced Uninstall” button.

3. If you chose Forced Uninstall, enter the program name which is Microsoft Office, click the “Browse for” button and select Folder, then browse to the Microsoft Office folder which is normally installed in “Program Files” or “Program Files (x86)”. If it finds any uninstallers connected to Office they will be listed and you can choose one to try and uninstall with it. Click Next.

4. Revo Uninstaller Pro will create a registry backup and a system restore point. It will first attempt to uninstall Office with any selected official uninstaller. Click Scan and the program will scan for leftover files, folders and registry items which you can review and delete if you want.

If most or all of the installation is still on the system, Revo uninstaller could find thousands of registry entries and files. In the event anything is still leftover from an Office install after going through the process once, you can simply run Revo Uninstaller Pro again and select the remaining files in a forced uninstall.

Last Resort: Uninstall Microsoft Office Manually

If none of the above methods have helped to completely remove Office from your computer, there may be little choice than to try and manually remove it from the system yourself. There are separate guides on the Microsoft website for uninstalling Office 2007, 2010, 2013 and one joint guide for 2016 and newer versions.

The instructions are complex and comprehensive so will take a lot of time and patience. They work with Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 along with versions of Office that are Click-to-Run, MSI installer or Windows Store versions. You will be guided through removing files, folders, scheduled tasks, services, Start menu entries, and registry keys/values. It’s not for the faint of heart but maybe your only option left to get rid of your Office install.

Hi Raymond,
This removal tool unfortunately only recognizes my Office 365 installation, not my 2007 one, which I can’t seem to get rid of.
Would you have any suggestions on how to remove office 2007 (student edition) manually in WIN10?


The Removal Tool gives me a compatibility error even AFTER setting the requested compatibility AND running it as administrator. Cannot remove from Control Panel > Uninstall programs as it was installed from disk by someone else that don’t have the disks anymore. I am desparate as the original owner’s license has expired AND I cannot upgrade to Windows 10 – I still got Windows 7. The only option left is to side-upgrade to Linux, but until I can get help to do that, I am stuck with obsolete programs! I only got TWO days to uninstall Office before it officially expires on January 28.

I am planning to uninstall my office 2007 (last Windows update messed up a couple of things). I have Windows 10. I will be installing office 2019. I just read that you don’t have to uninstall your current office as your new program will override and make changes. But most say you need to uninstall first. Please advise. I am no a bit techie.

Thank your for these tips.
The newest tool did not work on my old Windows 7 SP1 laptop with MS Office 2013 click and run. It would spin for ever after recognizing the installed package.
Using the second option worked like a charm.

I’m desperate…. Dot a licence to use office 365 but couldnt install it. I get error 30033-1011(“check internet connection and space on your HD” error).
After searching for ages, using every tool/uninstall procedure there was written on Microsoft sites, deleting registry, doing system restore I’m clueless…

Any ideas?


Thanks a million. Tried all ways to remove remnants of Office 2007 but to no avail. Then I tried your suggestion to use FixIt tool. Great job…fixed it in first attempt. Really appreciate your help

Zinko1 year ago

I also thank you for your comment.


Just an FYI for readers:
the Microsoft Office Uninstall Support Tool doesn’t seem to remove all versions of Office 365. The installer for the tool downloads however the installer itself had to be rerun multiple times. It seems it could be regional as its downloading/updating from the azure cloud. Once it eventually installed it didn’t detect any products. It’s possible its may be some sort of OEM Office 365 version (HP laptops) however the software also didn’t appear under Control Panel or Apps & Features.

The O15CTRRemove.diagcab also didn’t work for us so not sure if there is a new breed of Office 365 that Micro$haft is now installing.
Thank you for posting this here admin.

Before I remove office 2003, what do I need to save in Outlook ? and how
such as e mail addresses etc . Maybe .pst ?


The only method that actually worked for me is Microsoft Toolkit 2.6.2. It is also good for many other problems with Office and Windows.

I was having problem for so long, looking for help everywhere, all the result was sending me to programs uninstall, basic stuff, but I couldn’t see the Office files from the beginning so I didn’t know how or where to look to uninstall, I found this after much search, and I used Fix-it. Unbelievable, it runs the check and start the fixing part, was quick and soon went to the end where I just need to exit from the Command Prompt . Run the install program and done, it was running smooth again. Thank you for this instruction, simple, clear, to the point, and once in it, clear to follow, great support, thank you very much.


Revo did not properly completely removed office 2010, nor 2016, then occurring error when launching office setup.
I had to use microsoft toolkit (>2.4) to uninstall office 2010 (using offscrub), then reboot in order to be able to access office setup dialog and choose custom options.
