    I'm trying to remove Office 2004 from my MacPro (SaT edition, not the trail). I tried using MS's uninstaller but I get an error telling me I need to log back in as the original user that installed Office. My admin account is the only account that has ever been on the MacPro so I'm wondering if this error is the result of upgrading to Leopard. I did find a page on MS for manually uninstalling Office X, hopefully this will work with Office 2004. Any one know if AppZapper will remove all traces of Office 2004? Also can programs such as AppZapper remove apps that were installed before they were? I want to remove all traces of Office 2004. I'm using Office 2007 in Parallels, so 2004 goes unused. But the main reason I'd like to remove it is so that I can keep Entourage out of my sync preferences.

    I just also recently uninstalled Office using the exact same method as you. I even received the error about logging in as the admin. As far as I can tell even though the error occurred, it still uninstalled the entire program.

    I then used AppZapper to remove the rest of the files it dumped onto my desktop during the process.

    Same situation, despite the uninstaller telling me it couldn't remove Office, it looks like it went ahead and did just that, why am I not surprised. Now to track down all those other files.
