Installing Office 12. Error message. How to Uninstall prerelease version of Office 12.

When I try to install Office 12 in my brand-new laptop M1530 I get this error message:
"Setup errors
Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s):
- Office 12 does not support upgrading from a prerelease version of Office 12. Please uninstall any prerelease version of Office 12. Correct the issue(s) listed above and re-run setop."
There is no way to uninstall the preinstalled "Microsoft Office Powerpoint Viewer 2007 (english)" my laptop carries. Control Panel does not work. Microsoft CleanUp utility does not work. There must be something to get rid of unwanted preinstalled stuff.
Thanks.
M1530. Windows Vista.

Try installing the PowerPoint viewer again, then go to Control Panel and uninstall.
PowerPoint 2007 Viewer available << here >>

Thanks Allan. Good idea, but it hasn't worked. After installing the viewer again there is not "uninstalling" available in the "Control Panel" for this application.
I hope someone from Dell will know how this program was installed.

Software installations usually look in the registry for info. If you're familiar with regedit, use it to search for PowerPoint Viewer and delete the entry.

I tried that some days ago and something went wrong. Fortunately I could restore the system and the register. Anyway I will make another attempt. I have just found the following link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928218. It is written in spanish and it is titled "How to uninstall2007 Office System when you cannot uninstall through Control Panel options" (more or less).
I will let you know when I have some results. Thanks again!
