That probably would be the "Application Virtualisation" drive required by the Click-To-Run technology connected with Office 2010

Aha ...
(like I now know what to do .... )

I tried to install Office, but decided to remove it, which I have NOT been able to do .
I have no idea why I can NOT remove the whole thing.
Reason I want to remove, is because it did not work, properly.
*Hangs up*, after a while ....

Thanks for the answer anyway.

How did you install Office 2010 initially (the installation source), licensed copy from a CD, demo version from a CD, torrent download, etc?

I have never messed with Office 2010 but why can't you remove (uninstall) it? If it not even launching the uninstallation process or giving you an error during the process or ...?

Once you get rid of Office 2010, that drive created with the virtualization feature should vanish as well. Perhaps may be you could get rid of it via Disk Manager utility as well?

Demo version.

When I try to un-install, it sits there for a while, I can see the HD light flickering (So I know it is doing something), then this note comes up to contact my Network administrator. Uhmm , I am the only one at my home ...
It does not bother me, actually, because I have enough *space* available.

The original *Microsoft Works*, still does everything I want.

So following the simple, standard method as shown here was no dice?

Well, due to lack of knowledge with Office 2010, I hesitate to guide you on this but a quick search on the net revealed that you are far from the only one having issues of this sort with demo version of Office 2010.

I would advise trying Revo Uninstaller (download the free version not the pro version).

Using Revo Uninstaller, default uninstallation mode is "moderate" and it should be more than enough. Please try this cool freebie and let me know if worked for you or not.

Worst case scenario, I will download (assuming it is available) the demo version of Office 2010 on my virtual machine and create a manual removal process instructions o you and those other who are having the same issue can benefit from it.
Only caveat is that if you have any other Office products installed, there is a change they might get corrupt and may require a re-install.

Anyhow, let me know the outcome of using Revo Uninstall first please.
