Removing Office

Office includes one other clean-up option. Using the Remove Office utility, you can completely uninstall or selectively remove unnecessary components from any version of Office between Office 98 and 2004—avoiding the messy task of manually cleaning up the Office installations on your Mac.

To use the Remove Office tool

1.
Double-click the Remove Office program. (It can be found by opening the Microsoft Office 2004 folder, the Additional Tools folder, and then the Remove Office folder.)

The opening screen appears.

2.
Click Continue.

The program searches your hard disk(s) for components of Office 98–2004. The Results screen appears (Figure 2.35).

Figure 2.35. The Results screen lists the versions of Office (or their remnants) found on your computer.


3.
Select the versions that you want to remove and click Continue.

The Choose which components to remove screen appears (Figure 2.36).

Figure 2.36. Select the parts of Office that you want to delete.


4.
Check the appropriate boxes and click Continue.

5.
On the next screen, confirm your removal instructions by clicking Remove.

6.
On the final screen, click Quit.

The selected components are moved to the Trash. Some documents that you created may be moved to a Rescued Items folder on the Desktop.

7.
After inspecting the material in the Trash and removing any items that you wish to keep, choose Finder > Empty Trash.
