    Uninstall it completely, then reinstall with the new license code.

    You should use the included uninstaller.

    Wow, that's the worst guide I've ever seen. Force Quit all open applications? Then right-clicking instead of dragging the icons off the Dock? I think they're just trying to make it look like the Mac is as difficult as possible.

    I have a "Remove Office" tool in the "Additional Tools" folder inside the Microsoft Office 2011 folder. That should do the trick, although it will definitely completely uninstall and require a reinstall. I believe there is some way to deauthorize it without that, but someone else would have to provide that solution.
