    Hello all. I thought I had successfully removed the trail from my new MacBook, but I still have things in there...that I can't seem to find. For instance, opening a cvs file still tries to open Excel, like the office programs are still listed as available.

    Can anyone tell me how to get rid of office completely? I think I just grabbed it's folder in the applications and sent to trash.

    Search for 'office' in Spotlight and delete all the appropriate looking files (there was actually an uninstaller)

    Select a cvs file, press :apple: +i, then change the 'Open with' to the appropriate app, and press 'Change All' underneath :)
