Getting shot of Office 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently purchased Office 2007 and absolutely hate it.  I asked Microsoft if they would allow me to send it back in exchange for Office 2003 but they said I have to talk to the person I bought it from.  I have asked if they would be willing to do so but don't think for one second that they would entertain such a request.

    One thread on this subject asks the question of deactivating this software and the answer is that you basically can't - any reinstallation must be followed by a phone call to Microsoft to get it reactivated.

    I want to sell this application in favour of buying Office 2003, but why should any prospective purchaser have to go through the arduous process of phoning Microsoft and explaining why they are trying to install a previously-activated copy?

    How do I get shot of this awful program?
