    ?

    By what method did you uninstall? If you just dragged the folder to the trash, this won't de-serialize (if that's a word) MS Office. Somewhere in the Office folder (in the Accessories or Utilities or something like that) is an office uninstaller application. Run that uninstaller app and it should prepare you for a fresh install.

    yes you are going to have to use the uninstaller to make sure everything is gone in order for you to put in a different serial number, or i believe you could delete the prefernces, but im not 100% sure that is where the sn is stored

    There is an uninstaller on the installer CD.

    -> Value Pack -> Remove Office -> Remove Office

    To remove Office 2004:

    Run the "Remove Office" program found in the "Remove Office" folder in the "Additional Tools" folder which it selft is in the "Microsoft Office 2004" folder.
