    Hello,

    I would like to uninstall Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 but I don't know how to do it. Could you help me ? I would like to use only Outlook Express.

    Regards,

    do you have office suit, or only outlook 2007,
    you can go to add/rem programs in control panel
    while uninstalling (if ms office package) it will ask you what components to remove and you can choose outlook only.

    may i give you a simple suggestion:
    leave outlook there, just delete the shortcut if you like and make outlook express the default program for email

    What do you mean with 'leave there' ? It starts with Windows and I would like o disable this option. I don't think deleting the shortcut will solve my problem.

    you can go to start menu> run> type: msconfig & hit enter,
    go to startup tab, uncheck microsoft office toolbar, ms office or outlook if it is listed
    if not listed, go to start menu> programs> startup> delete any instance of msoffice or outlook by right clicking on it and choosing delete.

    emil, you should know that MS is discontinuing Outlook Express now anyway - you may want to reconsider in the long run. But I have had both Outlook and Outlook Express on my machines for years and never used Outlook.
    The msconfig is the most certain method way to disable what starts up, but there are a number of programs that will also do the same thing (all they do is provide a nice interface to the msconfig) - for instance, the free Spybot Search and Destroy has, under Tools, Startup (in Advanced User mode) a listing of what starts with your PC startup and you can uncheck what you want. (Like, who would expect such a feature in an anti-malware product? Well, I suppose it makes a strange kind of sense....)

    I think you can uninstall and then reinstall Office and just select to not install Outlook when you do.
