  • Hello momzoo,

    Yes, you do want to uninstall the existing nongenuine installation of Office, then restart twice, before installing the Genuine Office H&S 2007.

    To recover your documents saved on a USB flash drive, simply open Windows Explorer (aka My Computer) and copy them from the flash drive to your "My Documents" folder (Windows XP) or your user's Documents folder (Windows Vista and 7).  When you next open the Office programs, they will see them there because that's the default location for Office documents.
