A few weeks ago I purchased a second hand laptop that was loaded with Vista Premium and had Office 2003 Pro installed.
The other day I had to write a document and so I opened Word.
No sooner had I started using Word when I am presented with a nag box that told me that it is an illegal copy, but after I close that box it seems to work O.K.
So I decided to do the right thing and uninstall Office 2003 Pro...............in a pigs ear!
Office 2003 Pro does not have it's own uninstall function.
Windows Vista Add/Remove will not remove it either.
I also tried to remove it in Safe Mode only to be told that the something or other removal (tool?) is missing.
It does not matter what I try, I can not uninstall it.
Since then I have searched the Web to get answers and during that search I found that the key used for this program had been blacklisted by Microsoft as it is the most used pirated key....... Great, I am now stuck with this illegal copy!
Thinking hurts my head that's why I live in West Australia
