    In a sunny state of mind
    Can you be more general about your problem? Once you've added a product key, I don't think you can really remove it, nor do I understand why you want to... :confused:

    It's been a while since I've done an Office install, but if your problem is that you've got to have a key and you want to remove it on one computer to use it on another, that's not going to work, and I'd suggest you just buy another version or get a family pack with multiple keys next time, sorry.

    this is how

    (1) In the Finder, select /Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Office/OfficePID.plist
    , and then on the File menu, click Move to Trash.

    (2) Select /Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences/Microsoft/Office 2008/Microsoft Office 2008 settings.plist
    , and then on the File menu, click Move to Trash.

    (3) On the Apple menu, click Restart.

    (4) After your computer restarts, open any Office 2008 application.

    (5) The Office Setup Assistant opens.

    (6) Accept the software license agreement, and then enter your valid product key.
    Jesus Bless you!
