How do you completely remove the 60-Day Trial Version of Microsoft Office that comes with new computers? When you install it and uninstall it, it still gives the options of "Install Microsoft Office Trial" and "Try Microsoft Office". Do you have to install the trial version, then activate it, and then uninstall it?

have you tried to use add or remove programs? if you are just trying to remove it thats fime go to control panel -> add / remove programs find it and delete.

if you are trying to remove it so that you can get another free trail that is illegal and I am sure BC does not support that.

Well, it's not installed when you buy a new computer. You have to install it first. Then you can add/remove programs. But under Start, All Programs, Microsoft Office, it still gives you the option of installing the 60-Day Trial again. I want to know how to completely remove that part. I know I can manually go into Program Files and delete the folder myself, but I'm not sure if that will completely remove the option of reinstalling the trial under the Start Menu. It might still be there and if I click on it, it might display something like "link or file not found".

Here's my recipe for stubborn programs:

1) I remove what I can manually
2) I use Total Uninstall (shareware) to monitor the reinstallation of the program
3) I use Total Uninstall to remove it - and manually remove the stuff that can't be removed (because Total Uninstall will let you know it's location on the hard drive or the registry).

This has worked for me every time I tried it (3 or 4 times max).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

If you originally installed your Microsoft Office program from a network file server or from a shared folder, you must install or remove components from that location. If you installed your Office program from a CD-ROM and you've mapped your CD-ROM drive to a new drive letter since installing the Office program, reinstall from the CD-ROM. If you're running any Office program files from the CD-ROM, you must uninstall the Office program and then reinstall it from the CD-ROM.

1. Quit all programs.

2. Double-click the Add or Remove Programs icon in the Windows Control Panel.

3. Do one of the following:

o If you installed your Office program as part of Microsoft Office, click Microsoft Office in the Currently installed programs box, and then click the Change button.

o If you installed your Office program individually, click the name of your program in the Currently installed programs box, and then click the Change button.

4. Follow the instructions on the screen.

If you still need help, visit the Microsoft Office Newsgroup http://www.microsoft.com/office/community/...exp=&sloc=en-us that can direct you in the right direction. I put this in my response because I think you may need a "cd" to completely remove this product. You may need to get a free trial cd mailed to you and then use the uninstall for the program. As a Microsoft Partner and a beta tester of the Office products, I hate to hear that you are removing it! I am doing the technical beta test on the Office 12 or 2006 edition and I can tell you that you will want this baby when it comes out next year!
