Default How do I uninstall trial version of MS Office

I just installed Office 2010 on a Vista Laptop. I had Office Home & Student on there previously. After installation, I noticed an icon on the Desktop that says MS Office trial version 60 days. My question is, can I uninstall that without uninstalling Office 2010?

I have Advanced Uninstaller on that machine but cannot find the trial version of Office. I looked in the Uninstall in the Control Panel but do not see it there either. Maybe someone might be able to point me in the right direction with instructions as to what to do. Thanks!

Hi Andoheb,

Was the icon there beforehand? If so, it may just be a remnant from a previous installation of the trial version. The icon can safely be deleted. However, you should also check for the trial in the ControlPanel's 'Programs and Features' applet. If it's there, you should uninstall it.

Warm winter greetings Macropod,

The Icon was indeed there before MS Office 2007 (paid version) was installed. Now I have MS Office Professional Plus 2010, so this latter simply upgraded over the top of the previous version.
I cannot find the trial version at all in the Control / Uninstall - so it would appear I could delete the directory (called Activation) and the icon. Would you say that I would be correct? I'll appreciate your furthered advice. Thanks!!!

You can certainly delete the icon with no ill effects. If the Activation folder belonged to the trial installation, it'd probably be safe to delete that too.
