Im not looking for a hack or anything. We bought a laptop this summer, I guess I never got around to registering the MS Office programs during the grace period. Now whenever I go to open excel, or word, or power point, I have to enter a product key. Normally, I wouldn't have a problem with that, since the sticker is on the bottom of the laptop. But when I enter that, it generates an error message that the key isn't correct. I've done it a dozen times, so far as to write the key down and type it multiple times. Next I tried keypuller programs like Magic Jelly Bean and Winkeyfinder. No luck. Anyone have a method I can use to actually use my office programs?
Thanks in advance!!

You have to purchase a genuine product key. The one that came with your computer was just a trial and expires after 60 days. They key on the bottom is for windows, not office. Office starts around $300 or so.

Damn, that sucks. I know that when I got a copy of Office 2003 (I think) from a friend, it took me 5 minutes to find a generic key on the internet. I got Office 2007 through work, so I didn't have to screw Microsoft that time.

So it sucks he can't be a dishonest thief like you?

The student/home version is down to $130-$150 these days. Saw it in a BestBuy circular today (not a black Friday deal).

EDIT: Holy cow, it's actually on sale for $70 right now!! http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp;jsessionid=4FG1CJH5AGBG1KC4D3OFAGQ?skuId=8129447&st=office+2007&type=product&id=1158320998618

Since Microsoft starting producing office in 1990, 18 years ago, it has NEVER been included in Windows and has always been extra. Always has and always will. I'm still amazed at how many people think it comes with Windows.

I bought a factory sealed copy of 2007 pro from e-bay for 119.00 shipped.

Get OpenOffice and don't look back. Truth be told, if MS office were to dissapear (good luck) there would be no real reasons for most users to keep smoking the windows crack.

Open office has some formatting quirks if you open a MS Office document but works well enough if you use one of the MS Office compatible modes when you save a new one.
