Microsot Office 2007 license help needed

Hi, a while back i purchased microsoft office 2007 with a PC from Currys.

It is the version which comes on a disk and allows you to use the license code on 3 computers.

As we have 3 computers in the house i used up the allowance.

I have now sold one of our laptops which have it installed on.

Is it possible to unregister this PC and then be able to use the code again on a new PC?

Unfortunately not, the version you purchased will be OEM, which means it is tied to the hardware.

Once you have installed it on a machine it dies with that machine.

You can get non OEM versions but they are far more expensive.

Have you tried open office, it is compatible with all MS Office documents and is an excellent alternative as well as being free.

Just use the code again....
microsoft rep told us at training that they have no way of tracking how many times the key has been used.
try it again
Just install it on the new computer, worst case scenario is that the activation process forces you to call a Freephone number on which you will have to pledge eternal allegiance to Microsoft and swear that you did remove Office from the previous computer.
