Computer manufacturers often install a trial version of Microsoft Office. If you are getting a prompt to type in a Product Key when opening a Microsoft Office program, it s likely the trial period is over and you'll need to purchase a license (product key) for Microsoft Office.
The product key affixed to your computer is for Windows XP (the operating system) and not for Microsoft Office. Please review the following: How to determine whether you have a trial edition of a 2007 Office suite or program installed: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927920/en-us

If you are just looking for a good office product, you might consider Open Office. It is a freeware application that is mostly compatible with MS Office. I have been using it for the past few years and it meets the majority of my needs. You can download it at: http://download.openoffice.org/
If the Microsoft Office — 60-day trial desktop
icon is on your computer, you may have the Activation Assistant in the

you can’t locate the Activation Assistant, request a trial activation key online.
The Home and Student trial version only ships with Word, Excel and Powerpoint where as the Professional edition comes with a whole slew of additional programs and features. In order to upgrade, or switch to the Pro version of Office 2007 out right, you are going to need additional software. Just curious, did you purchase the license from Microsoft or through a third party vendor?
