I am trying to remove the test drive office v.X that was on my powerbook when I bought it. But when I do so (using the remover) I've got this message: "You do not have access to the microsoft v.X folder. To remove the office v.X test drive, you must log in as the user who installed it".

What's going on! I will not return my pb to taiwan and have it remove ( : ) ) anyone can help!

You have full admin rights, yeah?

If not -any experience with going into the root? You could just drag it to the Trash and clean up a bit.

No experience about going to the root since I'm new and I think that I have the full right admin since I am the pb admin but how do I check that?

Right-click it and click 'Get Info'. Under the 'Ownership and Permissions' tab, change 'You Can' to 'Read & Write'. If that doesn't work, nothing will.

Good luck!
