Reset all Office 2007 settings to default

Is there a way of resetting all Office 2007 Pro settings to the defaults, as though just installed.  I need to test new templates and would like to do so on a "virgin" install.

Thanks in advance.

The only easy way I know of doing this is to go to control panel - find MS Office 2007 and do a reinstall.  This will overwrite any default settings.
No need to do a reinstall. Do the same process. go to control panel>add/remove programes>office 2007 and click on change. You will then get an option to repair office. During the process you will see a check box that will ask if you want to restore all the short cuts to default.
Check this box and it will all reset.
