Uninstalling Office 2007
I tried out Office 2007 Enterprise edition. I liked it, but couldn't afford it at the time. i went back to my Office 2003.

I finally decided to get my 2003 up to date, but I have a problem. MS won't let me update because I have an expired version of 2007 on my computer. i have tried to uninstall it, but it won't... says something about not supporting the language. I have tried to delete it, and it won't do it. I have emailed MS, but (as usual) they have not responded.

So... I need a way to get it uninstalled SAFELY. Should I go with a third-party uninstalling utility, or is there a way to do it thrugh 2007?

Re: Uninstalling Office 2007
Looks like I am going to go with Office 2007. I will uninstall both 2003 and 2007 before I try it, though.
