  1. 'Location not available' after uninstalling program.


    I am having difficulty installing a program. On uninstall I get file explorer with 2 identical error messages stating the start menu folder is not available... ? This is a brand new Windows 10 pro installation on a new SSD and this is maybe the 5th program I've installed.

    Hi Brandi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    • Which program are you trying to uninstall?

    • What is the exact issue with Office XP Student?
    The issue you are facing could be due to the program is running on desktop background. Let’s try simple troubleshooting steps and heck if it help in resolving the issue. Follow the below steps:

    Step 1.

    I suggest you to go to the task manager and check if the program is running on Windows back ground. Follow the below steps:

    • Press CTRL+Shift+ESC to open Task manager.
    • Locate for the program which you are trying to uninstall.
    • Right click on it and click on End task.
    • Try uninstalling the program.
    If the issue still persist try the below steps.

    I would recommend you to restart the computer and as soon as the computer boot up try uninstalling the programs.

    If the above steps did not fix the issue try the below steps provided.

    Step 3.

    I suggest you to unregister and register the Windows installer and check if it helps. Follow the below steps:


    • Click Start, click Run, type
      MSIEXEC /UNREGISTER, and then click OK. Even if you do this correctly, it may look like nothing occurs.

    • Click Start, click Run, type
      MSIEXEC /REGSERVER, and then click OK. Even if you do this correctly, it may look like nothing occurs, or you may briefly see an hourglass. After you run this command, the operation is complete.
