I have RevoUninstaller PRO that will uninstall x64/x86 programs, but I believe MS load x86 Office.

Can I simply uninstall MS Office and know that MS cannot/will not resurrect Office nags ?

MS Office 15 is actually Office 2013.

MS recommend that Office be installed in x86 mode, which is the default installation. As yours came pre installed it's most likely the x86 version.

If you look in Control Panel, Programs & Features & scroll down to Microsoft Office it should also tell you what version it is. Normally uninstalling Office from Programs & Features should remove it properly.
