    The Windows Vista product key (25 characters) is located on the bottom of your Acer laptop PC.  Please follow this procedure:

     

    Restart your computer two (2) times. You should then see the activation screen after these reboots and be able to activate the machine by entering your Windows Vista Product Key. Afterward, visit http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/ and click on Validate Windows, then restart your computer again.

    Many computer manufacturers install a trial version of Microsoft Office.  Unless you specifically ordered and paid for a Microsoft Office license, you apparently have only the trial version installed.  If you wish to continue to use Microsoft Office, then you'll need to purchase a license (product key) for it.
