Hi and thanks for choosing Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to assist you.

I believe the problem you are having is that Home and Student 2010 doesn't come with Outlook, so it is probably still trying to access a trial version. Can you verify that you installed Home and Student and not Home and Business? If you did install Home and Student, then you will need to purchase a separate license for Outlook only. If you installed Home and Business please let me know and we can work on why Outlook isn't activating correctly.

Let me know if you need clarification as well; I will be here. Thank you.
Hello Julie, I notice that you rated my service as poor and I would like to do anything possible to bring that rating up. Can you confirm whether you install Home and Student or Home and Business? Thank you.

First I uninstalled Office home and student, in case that was part of the problem. no it wasnt.
Now i cant find how to reinstall it , I still have the key number.


Also I purchased after your email, paid by visa, to get Microsoft explorer as you said,from microsoft on the internet,Microsoft was supposed to send details how to download explorer to my email, I have had received no mail from microsoft, to help download this. I really need to get explorer and office working Do you know how. Thank You

To reinstall Office Home and Student, you can download the software from here:


Please keep in mind though that Home and Student only includes Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and One Note. Outlook doesn't come with Home and Student; it will be installed as a trial when you install Home and Student, so when you open Outlook it will prompt you for an additional license key. Now it sounds like you purchased that key so you should be able to enter it and Outlook will activate properly. Please let me know if this is not the case. Thank you.

I'm sorry there isn't much I can do about Microsoft not emailing you the key. Here is the entire link for the download of Microsoft Office:

You should be able to type that link into any computer and the download will start. I will opt out so that others can hopefully assist you with the Outlook key portion of this question. Thank you and sorry I could not do more.
Hi, I will assist,

Did you purchase Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2013?

Did you purchase Outlook online? What's the website did you purchase Outlook from?

Can we do a screen sharing session, so I can check/fix this issue directly for you? Thank you
