Stripping down Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 - what to remove?

So now I need to strip down Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 to make it as basic as possible. The goal is for simple student use, not connecting to the internet or any network. Mainly in the "Office Tools" section. This is a text translation of the "Add or Remove Features" window. Please advise me as to what I can dump!

Hi there
Why not look at what the Student and Teacher edition contains and just use the same (or similar) components plus Outlook (Student and Teacher edition doesn't include an Email client).

EXCEL, Powerpoint and Word are what you probably need together with an email client (say OUTLOOK).

Most offices I've been in don't really require MS Access either - although I would leave in the organisational management chart EXCEL plugin.

Also when you install you can also set options to be only available the first time a user tries to use the function.

If you have any egineering or Maths type of work I'gd leave in the equation editor too.


Cheers

This is on my friend's laptop. *sigh* I know, I know, student version, etc... I've tried to talk him into OpenOffice, and at least out of installing everything from Enterprise, but he insists that he NEEDS Microsoft Word, Excel, & PowerPoint, & insists that if Access, Groove, and OneNote are there, he is going to use it. He never knew he had them before, and when I told him what they did, he didn't understand a single word that came out of my mouth & resorted to his rhetoric. He's an Audio Production major.

I'm sorry, he just has me really frustrated. He asked me to make his weak laptop as fast as possible, then ties my hands with useless networking & top of the line office programs running unnecessary services & processes constantly... I should mark this as solved, because unfortunately, he has instructed me to install everything.

Thank you, though. I'll keep this in mind for future reference. =)
