Deactivating Office 2010

I am about to format my HDD and reinstall Windows 7. I already have Office 2010 installed on 3 computers so I want to deactivate it on this one I am using before I format it.

How can this be done?

Just uninstall office. Activate yr office again with the same key provided. If you have any problems activating, call Microsoft. :)

I agree with D3ftOn3z. I really don't know of any other way to do it.

If you are concerned about the number of activations that you are allowed for Microsoft Office 2010 you might want to call Microsoft just to make sure.

Don't worry. Just reinstall Ofiice when you have your new Win7. Nothing will happen. The activation will go thru without incident. I have done that many times.
