I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Okay this started this morning, and I have been fighting with it all day. The background is basically this : I built a system (my 7th one to date) and installed the same kind of win xp pro oem I always used, and it worked very well for about a month now.
This morning I decided to install a netgear card to let me get onto my wireless connection, and when I booted after putting the card in, windows recognized that as a drastic change in hardware and requested re-validation. Well I didnt think anything of it and sent the product key on its way. Unfortunately, Windows says that my key has been used too many times, and I need to buy a new one. Obviously I don't want to drop another $140 for something I already have.
I tried contacting Windows support, but that's no help, there was nothing but bots working the support, or at least people who are amazing with copy and paste. An hour with them and I was ready to rip my hair out,so I am left with 3 days to get a product key, and this is my work computer, so it's kind of imperative that this is solved =/

Can anyone help? if you can, thanks much in advance, if not, well, thanks for at least sticking with me this far.

A:[SOLVED] Windows demands a new product key.

Ive never heard of that, even with a oem copy. Sounds to me like
the reg key is on more than one pc. What usually happens when
you call support they will ask if the os is on more than one pc. You say
no, and they give you some numbers to plug in. That os reg key
must be pinging at there end.....

As usual on Thursday nights, Windows Update made updates to my OS Windows 7.

Although this time, Microsoft apparently decided I had been enjoying Office 2002 for waaayyy to long without giving them more of my hard-earned money.

Because Windows update has made changes so that now every time I open an Office software (Outlook, Word, etc.), it demands my license Office 2007 keycode, which I don't have since I didn't buy Office 2007 - and don't want it!

When I use Excel, Word or Powerpoint on my computer there is no problem but when I open a Powerpoint file attached to an e-mail I am getting a pop up that wants me to enter the product key. When I do it says that the product key in wrong. If I click on cancel the screen goes away and I can still view the Powerpoint slide but it is irritating to have to cancel that every time.

I'm shopping for an HP desktop. I like the p6610f that I can find on the shelf at Staples. It has all I need. It seems to come with a crippled version of MS Office 2010 preloaded. It appears I can pay about $119 more and get a product key I'd enter and convert my preloaded crippled version to a preloaded full featured version of the same set of components (Excel, Word, PPT, etc.). That's fine. I know how to do that.

My concern is: SEVERAL times in the past, my MS Office 2003 has crashed when my wife has tried to use it (she has a "limited user" acct on our current machine while I'm the administrator and I've never had a problem). I have always been able to reinstall it from the original CD which I have. That has not completely solved the problem but that's a subject for a different thread!

So if all I get now is a product key and something goes wrong, how do I start over again? Do I have to pay Gates et al more $$$ to get going again from scratch?!

Looks like you are installing just SP1 update, rather than full version of Office.

In the same email with the product key there should be full links to download your full version of Office or at least customer service number.

Every Office key has a specific version for it, you can not download just any version of Office (example: keys for PRO PLUS are not going to work with Home edition etc).

I had Microsoft Office 2010 installed in my home desktop. It had a recurring problem of connecting to the internet to verify my installation of which all attempts failed. It was getting very annoying to me that resulted to uninstalling it and to install another version.
 
I initiated the uninstall procedure just fine then it displayed that it had "a problem removing" it. I resorted to force-uninstalling it by using IOBit's Uninstaller program. It said it completely removed the program then I began installing the other version.
 
I ran the installer and then nothing happened. I thought it was a corrupted download so I went and re-downloaded the whole thing. It came up with the same failure. Nothing happens after running the installer. I downloaded another version of the same provider and it still gave the same results. No error message, at all.
 
I then downloaded an OpenOffice suite thinking that the problem might be Microsoft product related. Same results. No error message.
 
Now, I am worried that I broke something internally (registry perhaps) that prevented me to install any office suite. I tried Microsoft's FixIt troubleshooter to aid me in finding out what might have went wrong. Nothing, still.
 
I need help in figuring out if I need to reinstall my operating system or if this can still be remedied.

Have MS Office preinstalled when I got my hp convertible but how can I get product key for the activation?

A:Have preinstalled ms office but need product key

@Mohammadali1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!First of all, you need to know that HP keeps no records of individual MS Office product keys associated with individual PCs. That means there is no way to obtain this information from HP.Second, ever since Office 2013, MS Office has been distributed in two different forms: (1) installed locally, (2) installed using Click-to-Run (CTR).  The local versions used a product key received with the purchase (or via email, from a download), the CTR versions used a product key received via email from MS, but it was NOT stored on the PC. If you have the Local version, you should be able to retrieve that key using these utilities:  https://www.lifewire.com/free-product-key-finder-programs-2625119 If you have the CTR version, the key is not stored locally, and you can only get it by contacting Microsoft.Good Luck

I was totally astounded! at the shop I work at we swipe/scan all Microsoft cards/discs so the purchase goes too Microsoft, the 2010 Home & Student discs were purchased 18 months ago.

is there any way for MS too pull up the proof of purchase off our receipt and simply give the lady a new key and download link for H&S 2010?

I cant believe that she was told to purchase it again...if i lost my car keys I wouldn't have to buy a whole new car..its just daft.

Welcome Madamfrosan to the windows 7 forums.

The Key that is on your computer is the key for your windows version Not for office 2010. That key is only available from Microsoft. You can buy a key either on-line from microsoft or most large computer stores will see you the carton that has the key inside of it.
