Default How to uninstall office 2007and transfer to a new computer?

Hi, Office 2007 was installed on a desktop and a laptop computers. The
retail version of the Office 2007 allows to install only on two
computers. Now, I got a new windows 7 desktop computer. How can I
uninstall Office 2007 in the old computer and transfer/install on the
new Win7 computer?
John

Office doesn't have any built-in way to transfer a license from one
computer to another. The proper procedure is to uninstall it from the
old computer and, using the original disk and its product key, install
it on the new computer. After installation, when you try to activate
Office, you'll probably see a message box telling you that the maximum
number of installations has already been used and giving you a
telephone number at Microsoft Support. Call the number and explain
that you've moved Office to the new computer; they'll give you a new
activation key.

Can I simply uninstall Office from "Add or Remove Programs"?

But please note that this can only be done with a RETAIL boxed edition or if
it is a business open licensed version. OEM versions that come with
computers live and die with the original computer it was first installed on.
