Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic Edition

Windows Vista Problem

Hi there,
I am hoping you can he. I purchased a laptop that had Windows Vista Home Basic installed on it. After the trial period I installed the Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 software pack that I purchased at the same time as I purchased the laptop. For a little while it seemed okay. Now, anytime I try to open any Micreosoft office utility such as windows, excel, powerpoint etc, it says that ..."Microsift Office Word has stopped working. A problem to stop working properly."... then it says windows will try to find a solution and notify me when it does. Withing seconds a box appears with the following: ..."This problem was caused by Microsoft Office system software, which was created by Microsoft Corporation.".... so far I think I am getting somewhere! So I read down further: ...Recommendation

A cumulative update is available for your Microsoft Office system product that fixes many of the problems customers have reported to us, and it might address this problem.
Important: To get available updates for your Microsoft Office system product, you need to use Microsoft Update (a service available within Windows Update). If you don't have Microsoft Update installed, you'll need to install it before you can download updates for Microsoft Office.

Click to open Microsoft Update
Note
Windows Update will open if you already have Microsoft Update installed.


And here lies another problem... when i click on the Microsoft Update to open it, my computer tells me:
..."windows cannot find http://www.update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/vistadefault.aspx?In=en-us
so I am in the exact same position I was in at the beginning!

I amm running a little Etsy store and need at least Woed to work... can you help me? My product key was accepted on installation of the software, but when I looked at my product key on my proprties of the computer, its a different key, and I tried to change it to what the software pack has on it, and it did not recognise it as a valis Vista software key... bizzare!

thanks for your time and I hope i have given you enough information.
my email address is: tracey@waller-load-of-scrap.com

cheers,
Tracey W

To Update Windows Vista you need to use Windows Update which is located in the control panel. Once you have open windows update click Check for updates and then click view option updates. You should then see Microsoft Office 2007 Service Pack 1 in the list. Download and install this Service Pack and see if this correct the problem

Hi. recently i had purchased dell inspiram laptop with windos 7 home premium inbuilt operating system.i also had microsoft office 2010 preloaded . i need 25 characters product key to use microsoft...


Hi,

Laptops that have pre-installed Microsoft Office in it usually have 60-day trial version or Microsoft Office starter. The trial version may be a Home edition and has the full features but will ask for a product key after the trial period expires. The MS Office Starter only has limited features for MS Word and Excel only, but this is not a trial version.

If you want to continue using the trial MS Office or want the full functionality of MS Word and MS Excel plus MS powerpoint etc, you need to follow the steps provided to activate or purchase a product key from the application itself. You need to purchase the product key from Microsoft since this program is unfortunately not free.

Hope this helps.

I WANT PRODUCT KEY FOR VISTA WINDOW HOME BASIC TO OPEN ALL THE COMPONENTS OF MICROSOFT OFFICE 2007 PLEASE HELP ME TO SOUGHT OUT MY THESE PROBLEM....... I SHALL BE THANKFUL TO YOU.......


If you purchased Microsoft Office 2007 at a "retail" store, you should have received a 25-character product-code.

If you made an online purchase, check your E-mail; the product-key will have been E-mailed to you.

If you recently bought a new computer, it may have had a "trial" version pre-installed.
After the "trial" period ends, follow the on-screen instructions to purchase a product-key from Microsoft.

Ibought a new lap top in December 2009 and every time I try to use the home and student 2007 program it asks me for a product key. I have no idea where to find this Can you help


Hi,

Please let us know whether you purchased the laptop with pre-installed copy of Windows Home and Office 2007 software, i.e; the Windows Home and Office software was installed by the laptop vendor.

Usually, computer vendors install a 60-day trial version of the Windows Home and Office 2007. So, after the trial period is over, you will have to purchase the full version of the software.

Please reply to this post with more details. Thanks for using FixYa.

Computer won't play or recognize anything on dvd-


Looks like you are missing the DVD decoder. If you are using Windows lower than Vista Home Basic (Including) like Windows XP, they do not have the DVD decoder installed natively. Download a decoder and install it. Better still get a Good DVD player like Win DVD Player. You can also try this. Install a trial version of a DVD player. Even after the trial period expires probably your DVD will still work since the decoder is now there. Not checked but it might. In any case, if you like the player you can make it fully licensed on-line.

I want the product key of windows vista i like vista home edition but my trial period was expired so i want to reactive my windows so plz sent me the product key


The key is so specific to your system, that most keys won't work anyways. Most people "in the know", use WinXP, or better yet, Linux.

Product key (25-symbols) for windows vista home and student 2007


I am sorry but you have to purchase the MS off ice package from microsoft.  Your product key you are refering to is for the Windows program only.  We cannot provide you with a key as it is considered software piracy.
