Viet - MS Office Tech :

Since the Office activation period is over, you can just uninstall it from Start, Control Pane, Programs, Programs and Features (or Add/remove program). Then restart the computer and install the Office package and enter your product key.

Viet - MS Office Tech :

Then activate after installing.

Customer:

ok thanks i'll try that

Viet - MS Office Tech :

You're welcome. Thank you.
