Oops. I didn't see this before I upgraded. The 2004 Office removal tool also doesn't work. Anyone have a good idea about how to get Office 2004 off my Mac?

Removing Microsoft Office (any version) from your Macintosh.

Whereas /Library/ is the main Library folder and ~/Library/ is the one in the user's home folder do the following:

1. Put the /Applications/Microsoft Office*/ folder in the Trash.
2. Put the ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data folder for each user in the Trash.
3. Visit ~/Library/Preferences and put any applicable .plist files in the Trash.
4. Visit ~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/ folder and look for anything relevant to put in the Trash.
5. Visit /Library/Application Support/Microsoft/ and /Library/Preferences/ and look for anything relevant to put in the Trash.
6. Visit /Library/Fonts and ~/Library/Fonts and look for applicable MS Fonts that were installed by MS Office to remove. If you are not sure what these are you can leave the fonts there and continue to use them in other apps.

Special Note: keep in mind that if you use MS Communicator or MS Messenger or MS Remote Desktop Client you may need to move the applications out of the Microsoft Office folder and not touch their settings. Also note these apps use MS AutoUpdate.

This is how it is done. Most applications on your Mac follow a similar pattern. Unlike Microsoft; Apple has some structure to how things work in their Operating System.

In Mac OS X 10.7.x Lion the ~/Library folder is there, it's just hidden by Finder, it still works the same way.
