Posted this before under a different Topic Title and had no inputs, so trying with a different title.
I'm running Media Center Edition 2005 and have Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 installed but it does not show up in the Add/Remove Programs list in the Control Panel. All the updates are listed but not the program itself. I don't need to uninstall it now but would like to know why it isn't there in case I should ever need to uninstall and reinstall it. BTW, this is a legal and validated version.
Can it be reinstalled over the current installation with no ill effects?

I think that Microsoft Office can be un-installed by using the CD for the product. Open it and click on setup.exe (installer)...May be an option to un-install there. There is also the following process from Microsoft (looks rather complicated)...

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

The disc has no uninstall option on it. Checked the link and as it might get it uninstalled, it stated it might not be able to be re-installed! Thanks anyway!

Reinstall Office.

To uninstall Office, you must use both Add/Remove Programs and the Office CD.

So, it won't cause any problems with the current installation if I re-install over the first installation? Then maybe it would show up in the Add/Remove programs list?
