My thoughts exactly! Originally Posted by vansmith. It's technically possible but most places nowadays won't take back software if the package has been opened. So, if three friends did do this, the odds of them being able to return the software are pretty slim.
If they were able to exchange the product sometimes an option for opened software , then the fault lies with the bookstore who should give this individual a refund or a working copy.
Have you ever been to a university bookstore? They are just as credible as the local brick and mortar office supplies store or Amazon.
If anything "fishy" is going on, it has nothing to do with the bookstore. I think that you may have misinterpreted my meaning when I was agreeing that something "fishy" may be going on. Next, trash the W, X, P, E, messenger, and doc collection icons on the bottom. Empty the trash. Reinstall MS Office from the disc. Check for updates and first install Install It should be good to go. Does anybody have one. Hope you can give it now. Thanks in advance.

Hi Tech, I read your tricks and deleted the 2 files. Yet, when the assistant came up, it asks me if I want to provide user opinion, then sent me to the registration site of Microsoft , never for It never asks me for any key product!
