1. Very cheap with all MS Office 2007 features - go to http://microsoft.com/office - select an option to upgrade (you must have the trial key) = you will get teased again and agian into buying Office 2007 Pro - just choose an option to furter review - after lots of patience MS will offer it for you at only 99$ (=9$ I definately recommend backup disk (which is actaually the total Office Suite) which will be posted to you by MS.
2. Free - the OpenOffice Suite is extremely good if **t better than MS Office 2007 !! (there is ** true alternative for OUTLOOK though, but ThunderBird for home use will do just fine - go to http://www.ope**ffice.org to download. (it will only be decent from you to make a donation then)

Re: how do i restart all microsoft office 2007
New computers usually come with software that is a 60 or 90 day trial period than you need to purchase the product key. Your only option for this software morally is to purchase the key. Or you can do it the illegal way and type in warez in a search engine and look for the software you want and load from mirror sites all over the place and risk viruses on your system. One more option and this is what i would do (LINUX) . This is free! http://linux.about.com/od/softoffice/Linux_Software_Office_Suites.htm
check the sites out here and you can load some of these on your windows system.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It sounds as if your notebook came with Microsoft Office 2007 Home & Student Edition 60 Day Trial Version and that the trial period has now expired, requiring you to purchase and download an Activation Code from Microsoft to unlock the time limitation, if you want to continue using the software. If, however, you are certain that the installed application is fully licensed and not a trial version, then all you need to do is to activate it by going to the Microsoft website and, under Support and Activation, allow the site to scan your computer and verify the validity of the license. If the software proves to be licensed it will automatically be validated and the usage and Automatic Updates restrictions lifted, removing the need for you to enter a Product ID.
If the software proves to be unlicensed or trial-expired, the Microsoft website will offer you the chance to buy and download an Activation Code that will automatically unlock the time limitation and upgrade your trial version to a full version, validate and legitimize the installed Office software and automatically remove any usage limitations and Automatic Updates restrictions that you might be experiencing. A Microsoft Product ID is a Microsoft generated code that links genuine Microsoft software with a genuine Microsoft license that allows the user to install and use the software with the authority of the copyright owner. Without a valid Product ID, the software is illegal and installing it and using it could qualify as software piracy and copyright theft which, in certain circumstances, could become a civil legal issue or even a law enforcement matter. Please be aware that, not being knowing about the Law does not usually qualify as a Defense in legal matters, when someone else's rights have been infringed. If this copy of Microsoft Office is unlicensed, then what you are probably experiencing are the first signs of usage restrictions and limitations that can ultimately end up in the application locking you out completely and therefore becoming totally unusable. As things stand you are probably already unable to benefit from Microsoft Automatic Updates, enhancements and security patches for Microsoft Office. I advise you to use only a genuine licensed version of Microsoft Office or you will almost certainly have authorization problems such as the ones you are starting to experience, which defeat the very purpose of installing the software in the first place. As an alternative option, you could buy and install a heavily discounted, genuine, licensed copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Professional Plus Edition starting from about $85 (plus shipping and packing) or Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus Edition for about $78 (plus shipping and packing) from similar websites a below (when you find them geographically local to you): http://www.software4students.co.uk/Microsoft_Office_Professional_Plus_2007-details.aspx http://www.software4students.co.uk/Microsoft_Office_2010_Professional_Plus-details.aspx
The only legal downloads of Microsoft products are available from Microsoft. Microsoft does not currently offer downloads of old products like Microsoft Office 2007 or Office 2003. The only Microsoft Office product a user can download is the Trial version of the latest version of Microsoft Office in the market. At the moment what you can download is Microsoft Office 2010 Trial. Trial versions of Microsoft Office are free to download but can be used only for the usually 60 days of the limited trial period. After the trial period expires, to carry on using the software, the user must again upgrade to the full version and buy an online Activation Code from Microsoft that unlocks the trial version's time limitation and allows perpetual use of the software from then onwards.
If this type of software is important to you but don't want to or can't afford the retail price of Microsoft Office, then you could download, install and use completely free Office software such as Open Office, which is very similar to Microsoft Office and can even open, edit and manage the majority of the most common types of Microsoft Office spreadsheets, databases and documents. You pay nothing at all to download, install and use Open Office. It is an Open Source software application.

The trial period is up and it is time to purchase a key from Microsoft. Or you can go to http://www.sun.com and download and install their free OpenOffice 3. This office suite has data base, spread sheet, presentation and word processing programs too. OpenOffice will import MS Office files so you can still use your data. If you want a free publishing program, check out Scribus from http://www.scribus.net/.
It depends which trial version was downloaded. You can't reinstall the same trial download but they do have other trial downloads.
There is a student 2007, small business 2007, professional 2007 etc. versions. You can download each one of these if you have not already used these trial versions. They all offer the basics...Word, Excell, Powerpoint, Outlook with added software depending on what version you download.
