Have you already tried to do disk cleanup? It deletes all your temporary internet files, which eats up a huge part incase you havent done this. It only deletes files in the recycle bin and other locations. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools then Disk Cleanup.

Also, if you have disk partition of other drives other than C:\ then it would be advisable to transfer your files like pictures, movies or music files to that drive.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FIxYa.

As long as you have the origina disk you can get another key from microsoft.

call Microsoft local number, and tell the them the problem. Make sure to have the office disk handy because I think they will ask you to read something from the disk for them.
I have called for new numbers for windows and office before and that is how they did it.

Good luck
