Hi Kenley

The most common fix advised for this is to reinstall your OS (yes, really). Let's see if we can avoid that.

Here are some sane steps that can be taken:-

  1. M$ has provided a "Microsoft Fix-It" website:-

    "Automatically repair issues that block program installation or removal because of corrupted registry keys."

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/mats/program_install_and_uninstall

  2. The MS Website in the previous step also has been reported to have a "super" version of Windows Update. Make use of that until thoroughly updated.

  3. (if none of the above removes the old LO from the Registry)

    i) Download the 4.4.0 MSI
    ii) Right-click on the MSI & choose 'remove'.

    website:- > "Automatically repair issues that block program installation or removal because of corrupted registry keys."

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/mats/program_install_and_uninstall



    That website is a replacement for The Windows Installer Cleanup utility (MSICUU2.exe, retired by M$ as they said that it corrupted some Registry instead of fixing them (whoops)), and also a replacement for the former http: //support.microsoft.com/fixit/, which has been removed without redirection.
  2. The MS Website in the previous step is also reported to have a "super-effective" version of Windows Update. Update (a corrupted Registry can prevent viable system Updating as much as it can prevent non-M$ program installation/update). Keep making use of that until thoroughly updated.

    no more updates are required. MS system updates are vital for both system integrity & security.
  3. (if none of the above removes the old LO from the Registry)
