    I have Microsoft Office 2008 Standard for Mac SP2, but I do not need Entourage. How can I only remove Entourage and keep the rest of the Office Suite intact? Thanks.

    Don't just drag Entourage to the trash can. If you do that, you're likely to run into problems in subsequent updates.

    To get rid of it, the only sure way to do so and not run into problems with subsequent updates is to fully uninstall Office, and then reinstall. When you reinstall, do a custom installation so that you can skip the applications and other things you don't need (like language files).

    Regards,
    Nadyne.

    I agree. If for some reason you don't have the Office disk, just leave Entourage on your machine. Alterations to Office without re-installing can make updating a living hell. I'm shocked that I could get SP2 to install today, since I couldn't install any of the previous updates thanks to using Multilingual to uninstall unneeded language packs.

    Just wanna chip in and say, I had the same issue, I wanted to delete entourage. I used app clearner, and now everytime I open an office application, it complains that the database is incomplete and that I need to reinstall!

    Uninstall Office, and then reinstall it. When you reinstall it, do a custom installation to skip installing whatever you don't want. Then you can run the update without a problem.
