View Full Version : How do I uninstall Office 2007...???


Several years ago, I purchased an Acer Veriton M2 computer which came with Windows 7 Professional and Microsoft Office 2007 preinstalled. I use Apache Open Office because it meets all of my needs, and I don't want to pay for Microsoft Office. I want to uninstall the preloaded Microsoft Office from the computer, but I'm not sure that this is as straigntforward as I had hoped. Looking in the Control Panel under Programs and Features there isn't an item listed like "Microsoft Office 2007". Instead, there are a number of programs with Microsoft Office in their names:

2007 Microsoft Office System

Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components

Microsoft Office 2007 Preliminary Interop Assemblies

Microsoft Office File Validation Add-In

Microsoft Office Outlook Connector

Microsoft Office Small Business Connectivity Components

Microsoft Office Suite Activation Assistant

Can I safely Uninstall each of these Programs individually, or can I expect all of them to go away if I Uninstall "2007 Microsoft Office System", for instance?

Thanks for the help.
