Office started saying it wasn't activated, but shows it is under the help menu RRS feed

  • Question

  • After several years of working, my office pro 2003 install now says that it needs activated.  It has been, and says so under the help menu option.

    I had some issues with Internet explorer (each time I tried to open a URL, it opened Firefox, my default browser, instead.)  In resolving that problem, I may have knocked out a registry entry or something. 

    Let me know what steps to take to fix this.  The diagnostic information follows.

  • I deleted the data.dat file in the c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\microsoft\office\data folder, and the prompt went away. Thanks for your help!

  • Hello Andrews Neely,

    Just having the prompt go away is not quite a full victory.

    Please restart the computer, then keeping Office programs closed for the moment, visit www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on the Valdiate Office button.  Office should valdiate normally.

    Then, open several Office programs to ensure you no longer see the nongenuine notices and are no longer prompted to activate.

    If you have made it to this point, now you can declare victory :-)
