To get rid of Microsoft AutoUpdate on Mac, remove these files and folders:

In the System Library (you need "sudo"):

/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/MAU2.0

In your user's Library (needs to be done for each user):

~/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.autoupdate2.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.autoupdate.fba.plist
~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft AU Daemon
~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft Update Assistant
~/Library/Saved Application State/com.microsoft.autoupdate2.savedState

Depending on the version (2011 or 2016/O365), you may miss one or more of these files and folders.
