    It shouldn't affect the other applications .. maybe a more experienced person than me can give you a more secure advice :rolleyes:

    Was there any sort of option for what Applications to install when you first installed it? (its been a while since I have installed a copy...)

    If so, then uninstall and do a clean install, with only the ones you want.
    If not, it is going to take a lot of mucking around to delete all the crap that each application uses. How pressed for space are you, really? Because I have a feeling that this is going to be a major pain in your @$$...

    Word of advice, make sure you run Time Machine right before you try uninstalling.

    I've tried slimming Office down as much as I can, but each time I try it mucks up Word or PowerPoint or Excel. Unfortunately Office has a huge footprint, and comes with a lot of crap!!! Just take time, go slowly, take screen shots so you know what you did if you need to go back. Try Xslimmer, that helped get to reduce it somewhat for me.
