I had Office 2010 installed on my computer. I later found it was a pirate copy, so I purchased a new copy of Office 2013. After the 2013 version was installed, and I had all my email system working, I kept getting problems with office 2013 saying that two versions could not be run at the same time. I kept having to shut down the 2013 version, and stop the office services in Task Manager before it would re-start. I decided that I had to delete the old version using Control Panel.
Within an hour, the email system on my Outlook 2013 crashed, and no matter what I did, it would no longer work. I fixed it by restoring the computer to the state it was in prior to deleting Office 2010. However, I only get updates for Office 2010, and cannot add any of the power pivot addins that I should be able to. Mine is a stand alone version of Office 2013.
Every time I open a spreadsheet by clicking on it, it opens in 2010, not 2013.
As 2013 does not come on a disk, but with a code and a 7 hour download at my connection speed, How do I remove all the Office kit from my machine and re-install it.
I am using widows 7 professional 64 bit

Hate to say this but the only way I know of to get the old version off is to remove both starting with the latest version (I've been there). You might want to get a copy of Revo Uninstaller to do the job. It does a better job than your Windows uninstaller. Go to revouninstaller dot com (can't post the actual link because I'm a new forum member and have to have 10 posts before they let you post links).

if you are unable to remove office 2010 from your system, i recommend you to check that is it running in the background or not one more thing you could do is to use some uninstaller so it could be completely removed from your system.
