Windows 10: constant user "SYSTEM" has previously initiated install Office 2010

    constant user "SYSTEM" has previously initiated install Office 2010

    Hello everyone! every time I try to install anything.....I mean anything, I get an annoying error that says:

    User "SYSTEM" has previously initiated an install for product "Microsoft Office Office 64-bit components 2010". That user will need to run that install again before they can use that product. your current install will now continue.

    Then I tell it "OK" and it gives me another error saying:

    Previous install will have to be rolled back

    I tell it OK and it goes about it's merry way. I don't get what the issue is at all! Office 2010 has been installed for the better part of a year and it works just fine.

    Any thoughts on what I can do to get rid of this complete annoyance? Let me know if you need any logs or anything...
