    I just installed Office for Mac 2008 and after my name it picked up another line of data. I'm not sure if it propagated and I missed it, or what happened. Anyway, I tried to uninstall and reinstall Office, and also tried emptying the trash before the reinstall. However, I cannot get the screens to come up that ask for the product key and name so that I can correct this. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks!

    Uninstall Office again and then remove the com.microsoft.<name>.plist files in your <user home directory>/Library/Preferences directory.

    Examples of Office are:

    com.microsoft.setupassistant.plist
    com.microsoft.Word.plist
    com.microsoft.Powerpoint.plist
    .
    .
    .
    etc.

    Then reinstall Office and run the Setup Assistant.
