    ok, so I've installed my version of office:mac... but the test drive version is still on my computer... when I uninstall test drive (i.e. drag the folder to the trash can) and then try to open a .ppt file or whatever it gives me an unexpected error. Is there any way to associate all the .ppt, .xls, & .doc files on my computer with my new installed version of office? Thanks!

    Repairing permissions (Run Disk Utility) should clear that up.

    If not, right click on the file and choose Get Info. From there, you can associate the file type with an application.
