Information service is not installed on this computer

I had Office 2007 instealled, and later installed Office 2010
Technical Preview alongside it, and this caused Outlook 2010 to
overwrite Outlook 2007.

I used it for a whilst, but experienced a lot of problems with it,
all of which required me to reinstall it, or result back to Outlook
2007. So I have now reinstalled it 4 or 5 times and keep receiving
the same problem.

Now, I am trying to use 2007 again, and when adding a data file
using the 'Mail' control panel, I receive a message saying "the
informaton sevice is not installed on this computer". I have now
tried every solution I have found using Google, but have had no luck
resulting back to Outlook 2007. I am tired of using 2010 for it to
just stop working again (errors such as 'not implemented' when
trying to send/receive).

Does anyone know of a solution to this? There seem to be a few
others online who have the same problem.

Thanks

Have tried uninstalling Office 2010 and Office 2007 completely, with a reboot
in between each before reinstalling 2007.

Have now done this a number of times.

Did you uninstall 2010 completely and reboot? Then reinstall office 2007?

once you have completely removed office 2010 and rebooted, then go ahead and uninstall office 2007. After that make sure you remove the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office registry key. You might get an error message saying you it cannot remove the entire key...that is ok. Just reboot after that and re-install office 2007. It should work fine after that.

Hope this helps

Don't compose all on one long line. If your news interface doesn't wrap
automatically, put new lines in manually. Also, always quote the the relevant
portions of the message to which you think you're replying to that people have
a clue to what it is you're referring.

My guess, although it doesn't properly identify itself as such with the
inclusion of headers denoting the gateway client (e.g., vBulletin) is that
Jorge is using a leech site providing a webnews-for-dummies interface that
gateways to Usenet. The vast majority of the leeching gateways haven't a
clue on how to properly format their posts when dumping them into Usenet.
Their forum software will automatically wrap the lines at whatever is the
current width of the textbox in their web browser. They are too stupid to
know how to properly format for posting to Usenet. I doubt they've ever
actually been in Usenet.

The boobs using the webnews-for-dummies gateway haven't a clue that they are
participating in Usenet or what is Usenet. The boobs that wrote the gateway
script added to the forum software haven't a clue on how to reformat the
forum posts to comply with standard netiquette rules for Usenet.

From the IMPROPER signature (i.e., no "-- \n" sigdash line), yep, it's
another Usenet leeching site pretending to have forums to pretend they have
a larger community (http://msgroups.net/). Time to add yet another leech
site to my kill filters.
