MS office 13 on Windows 8 machine

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


This is really annoying to be honest.

I have MS office 13 on Windows 8 machine

I am trying to uninstall but I could not, it shows error saying that "something has gone wrong"

I tried killing all the related processes from task manager but they did not go either.

Please help.

The issue you are facing is because some related files are being used by a different program. You may not be able to identify through task manager. The simplest solution is to reboot the system and to uninstall Office 2013 first thing when the reboot is completed. If this does not work, download this FixIT.

It is from Microsoft, so download and run it. It will remove all associated files. Click on the link, save the file in a location, open the location and run it. Do not run the application from the download box itself.
