    I installed Office 2004 on my computer but I want to get rid of the free one and iWorks. I went to the uninstall Office Icon and it brought up Results:

    Microsoft Office X (including Test Drive)
    Microsoft Office 2004 (including Test Drive)

    Which one do I delete to get rid of the trial.

    Also, how should I uninstall the iWorks Trial.

    Last thing what is MAU Update Logs?

    Those look like you, for some reason, have two versions of Office (Office.X, released around 2001, and Office 2004, released at that time) installed. I'm not sure why you would have Office.X. The 2004 might refer just to the version you installed or to that plus the demo.

    My suggestion, to be on the safe side, is this: uninstall all of it, and THEN, after you do that, install the full Office 2004 again, to make sure you haven't accidentally either gotten rid of part of it or still left both the trial and the real deal on there.

    MAU = Microsoft Auto Updater -- it's the updating tool that's part of MS Office.
