- Remove any office based folders from /Library/Application Support
And then restart. You should be good.
Also, what do you mean by "my exchange account was still connected through office reminders". Are you looking at the Exchange server on a server level? Or do you still get reminders through iCal? If so, you can delete the Exchange calendar in iCal. I think by default it sets itself up to sync your Exchange data to Address Book and iCal.
I installed office, realized that I don't want entourage on my system nor did I want to be connected to the exchange server. I couldn't find a way to just remove entourage, it seems as though the only way is uninstall office and reinstall without entourage.
I uninstalled and reinstalled without entourage (and any other 'reminder' type souding things.. Only Word, Excel, Powerpoint.)
Then the next time I opened Word the office reminder thing popped up with reminders (very annoying..).. I really didn't look to see if they were new (i.e. still connected to exchange..)
I don't like seeing all of these 'old' entourage and other MS stuff in my documents folder. I'm really thinking about reinstalling osx, I'm a bit OCD about residual crap like this.
