    In Applications find the Microsoft Office 2004 folder. Drag to trash.

    Go into the Library folder in your Home directory and find the Microsoft support folders. Also drag to trash.

    Go into System Preferences>>Accounts, then the Login Items pane and remove the Microsoft Database item using the - button.

    Empty trash.

    That should do it :)

    There is an included uninstaller named Remove Office which is housed in the Additional Tools folder. Use the uninstaller to remove office.

    sorry for a 4 year old reply to this thread, but i have been attempting to uninstall office 2004 completely from the machine, and this above method does not work very well. it mainly only removes the preference files and the application itself - it leaves installed fonts and a few other things intact.

    so the best way to rid it is to do it manually! :(


    thanks microsoft.

    Office 2004 installed it's fonts in the User's Library/Fonts folder. They are old and can only be used by the user that is logged in.

    Many of the Snow Leopard fonts are newer than installed fonts in Office 2008 and Office 2011. On top of that they are duplicates and cause crashes.

    See Font Management for help

    I agree. The only effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:
