How to uninstall trial software

Helproom: The trials of trialware

QUESTION My Vista laptop came with a 60-day trial of Microsoft Office. I'd like to remove this, since I've never used it and it takes up a lot of disk space. Is there any reason why I shouldn't? I don't have a Windows CD to restore the OS should I mess things up. Ken Robinson

HELPROOM ANSWER Since you've not associated any documents with it, removing Microsoft Office shouldn't cause you any problems. Uninstall it from Start, Control Panel, Programs and Features, Microsoft Office. Any applied updates will be removed at the same time.
