How do I uninstall a prerelease version of Microsoft Office 2010

How do I uninstall a prerelease version of Microsoft Office 2010 when I can't in Program Panel ... it does nothing when I hit uninstall.  I purchased Microsoft Home Use Program Professional Plus 2010 and it gives an error message saying it does not support upgrading from  prerelease version and that I must uninstall any prerelease versions first.  But, I can't get the prereleased version off my Program Panel.  I am currently using Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007.

Hi,

Reading your post reminded me that I still have the technical preview installed on my laptop. I went to uninstall it and was successful. It does take some time for the uninstall wizard to start. Restart your computer and try again. Also, make sure you have admin privileges on your compputer.

Linley.
