    Hi, I am very new to this, so this might be a bit garbled (not make sense etc) ..forgive me and have patience as reading some of the forums you all seem much cleverer than me

    Here is my problem

    1.I activated free 60 day trial of office 2010 (bad mistake on my part)
    2.When it came down to 5 days left the "microsoft activation wizard kicked in" asking for a product key
    3.I went to control panel to uninstall office 2010.
    4. months later I installed a copy of 2010 ( no product key was required)
    5. BUT NOW the "microsoft activation wizard" has stopped me using this as it appears all the time
    6. did I clear all the old pre-installed Officestuff when I un-installed or what?
    7. is the "microsoft activation wizard" referring to the old 60 day free trial version or my newer version i am trying to put on
    8.should I un-install again or is there a quicker way to stop this "microsoft activation wizard" appearing all the time.

    Any help would be graciously received,
    but it would have to be step by step as I only rate my knowledge about 4 or 5 out of 10 re computing
