Is this a operating system product key?
I think so, it comes up when i try and use microsoft word. It allows you 25 uses until a product key is needed.
The one that is on your computer is for your operating system not Microsoft Office
Where did you get your Microsoft office from?
It was already installed in the computer when i purchased it.
How long have you had this computer?
Ive had the computer under 12 months but have not been ableto use it because of this issue.
When you purchase a new computer they put a trial version of Microsoft Office on your computer. It is also called Microsoft Starter version
So you would need to purchase a license for it in order to keep using it.
How do i purchase the licence
when it asks to activate is it giving you a button to purchase a license?
do you know what version you have?
Windows 7 home premium
That is your Operating System
Do you have word opened?
If so you can go to Help then About Word to find the version
Or you can click the start button then all programs then Microsoft and it might say Microsoft 2007 or 2010
Its 2007, word is currently open.

Sorry the first link is dead I should of checked it. Looks like they are pushing 2010 now so I am not sure how to get a 2007 license
You might need to just purchase the 2010.
What all do you use with the Microsoft Office?
Word, Excel. Outlook?
Or just Word?
