    Hi everyone

    Sorry if I began in a little confusion. First, thank goes to Woody for the little trick how to extend trail activation for Windows 7. I am now abroad, and it really helped.

    Also, on my new laptop with legal Windows 7 - since I am a real peasant and it was my first laptop, no one told me I needed activation! I admit I am an ignorant- and now all of the sudden, I began to get mesages each time I open a word document - that Office Word 2003 is not genuine.
    Now I have 10 days left to solv the problem. Or...

    What can I expect after 10 days? All my word documents lost?

    But the main question is - how can I get rid of those messsages? *(and continue to write safely in Word)

    Thanks guys.

    You will loose functionality in your Office product. If you have a product key, Office products can generally be reinstalled and activated up to 2 additional times (original installation and 2 additional installations) You may have to contact Microsoft support if this is more than 3 times for installation.

    This is from the UK FAQ (not sure why the U.S. one has been removed):

    After the trial expires, the software goes into reduced functionality mode. In reduced functionality mode you can continue to view and print files, but you cannot modify existing files or create and save new ones.

    OpenOffice works the same regardless of whether your Office 2003 is a trial, a full, or nonexistent.
