Default m,anual program uninstall\\corrupt Star Office 5.2

hi, im trying to sort a problem out for a friend, they have star office 5.2 and it looks as though they have tryed to install it and it has installed wrong or something. and when i try to reinstall it says that star office 5.2 is already installed on the system so it wont let me reinstall it, and because of the corrupt installation the uninstaller isnt there. can anyone tell me how to remove the program manually? so i can then reinstall it properly.

Id much appreciate it

don't forget to restart after you delete the registry items. also you can run a registry cleaning program like regscrubxp or regcleaner to remove related items. also on the installation disk there is the uninstall exe file that you could manually copy onto the HD and run, doubt that would work though now that you've already removed registry items.
