    They PRODUCT KEY on the underside of the laptop is for WINDOWS 7 not MICROSOFT OFFICE
  6. and the installation of MICROSOFT OFFICE on your Acer laptop is designed to stop working after 25 uses because it is a TRIAL. It is not the fully licenced version of the software, and if you want to use it any more you must BUY a licence from Microsoft or your local retailer.

  10. Also you probably have a trial version of an anti-virus program running as well that will time out at some future date. Don’t pay for the anti-virus program, uninstall it and install Microsoft Security Essentials instead.
