what if Office 2003 needs to be reinstalled?

by glb613 / December 14, 2004 9:57 AM PST

I was able to buy Microsoft Office 2003 through my employer for a fraction of the retail cost. I installed and activated it on one of my computers. I understand I'm only allowed one activation or to have it installed on one computer at a time. My question is, what happens if I need to reinstall the program? If I format and reinstall the operating system, decide I want it installed on a different computer or buy a new computer, will the program allow me to reactivate it? If not, what procedure do I need to follow? Except for XP, I've never owned a product with such strict antipiracy features.

If it doesn't reactivate...

Then a phone number appears and you call in to sort it out.

Ever wonder why I use Open Office? And why we use it widely at the office?

I don't want to use Open Office, but thanks for the tip.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
