give me a product key for office 2007

The ONLY people who can GET you a Product Key for Office 2007 are Microsoft.
If you do not have the Product code - which is on a label on the supplied box, then you have a PIRATED COPY.
Pirated Software may contain spyware and keyloggers through which others can steal your Passwords, Bank details and even your Identity.
Download a FREE copy of OpenOffice off the web - from http://download.openoffice.org/other.html - it has ALL the same functionality as MS Office 2007 It is FREE and it is also FREE of spyware and keyloggers.
Just remember to Set it up to SAVE in WORD Format(s)
Good luck.
