How to remove just Outlook from Office 2010
I would appreciate some advice from anyone who has tried -- successfully or unsuccessfully -- to remove a component of Office 2010 WITHOUT uninstalling the whole suite and then reinstalling it excluding that particular component.
Specifically, I want to remove Outlook (I thought I custom installed without Outlook... but there is is!) I have read at several help sites that a single Office 2010 component may be easily removed by going to the "Programs and Features>Install or change a Program" panel, selecting "Office 2010," then selecting the "Change" button and following to a list of components that may be selected or unselected.
BUT, I have also read (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ex...4261.aspx)that individual components may not be removed without uninstalling the whole suite and then deselecting during a custom reinstall.
Recounts of any related experience with this procedure would be appreciated. I am also not sure what to expect when/if I get to the final "Change" option panel. I am not sure if I am expected to check the box of the component I want to remove... or to UNcheck it.
Thanks much. I will report any results.

Thanks to strollin and gregrocker for taking time to respond. The procedure worked well -- even removing the icon from the Start list. Afterweard Ccleaner found a couple minor registry issues to fix.
Just for clarification, the final step is not so much in "deselecting," as it is in selecting the "not available" option made visible after clicking the down-arrow for Outlook.
Here's a good video [ Microsoft® Outlook 2010: How to uninstall Microsoft® Outlook 2010 from Windows® XP? - YouTube
] even though it is for XP the steps are almost identical for Windows 7.
(Still puzzled by the page from "office.microsoft.com" saying that individual components may not be removed!??)
