When you're automating an Office 365 deployment, you're bound to get some broken workstations. Can't complete the install, can't launch the apps, and can't uninstall either. Get a bigger hammer. Use the Office removal tool to delete Microsoft Office (versions 2007-2016) plus Skype for Business Basic from your Windows pc. It should get rid of all the files that are preventing a good re-install. (However, you might still need to check the registry for Communicator remnants and anything in the Run key.)

Have you ever had a fireant bite on the outer edge of your ear? It's evil.

FYI, Exchange Online Protection sometimes returns a false positive on attachments with long filenames.

Never, never, never open a link or an attachment in an email you weren't expecting. Even if it appears to be from someone you trust.
