    Hello fargonestation,

        Here is a snippet of your mgadiag report:

        OGA Data-->
        Office Status: 108 Invalid VLK
        Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 - 108 Invalid VLK
        OGA Version: Registered,
        Signed By: Microsoft
        Office Diagnostics: 025D1FF3-230-1

        The report is showing only the nongenuine installation of Office Enterprise 2007 as being currently installed.

        I think the ideal course of action at this point would be backing up and offloading your data, then doing a clean installation of Windows XP Pro and the new Office Ultimate onto the computer.

        Understanding that may not be feasible, the next best idea IMO would be to do what you can to remove all the remnants of the various Office installations from the computer, then try a clean installation of your Office Ultimate.

        This MS KB provides instructions on how to do a manual uninstallation of Office 2007:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928218.  At the top of that article is a link to another article that has an MS FixIt utility that does the manual steps for you.

        Here is a link to an article that describes a removal wizard included in the Office XP resource kit that is suppsoed to be able to remove Office 2000:  http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/orkXP/HA011362891033.aspx

        After removing what you can of all the Office installations, be aware that even after installation of the new and presumably genuine Office Ultimate, you may continue to see nongenuine notices.  This is because leftover license files from these old installations may not have been removed, and the OGA Notifier utility will see nongenuine license files and will display nongenuine notices.  In such case, the info in these two articles will help you look for and delete the old license files:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919895 and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/903275/

        Good Luck and keep us posted! :-) For great advice on all topics XP, visit


    Thank you for your very comprehensive and timely respons and instructions. I seem to have one last hurdle with which I hope you can help. I believe I've dug out the old installations using a combination of the manual procedures and the wizards you've pointed me to. However, I'm unable to install the new Office Ultimate which previously installed. I've tried from 2 CD's I burned before the problem began as well as from a portable hard drive. The downloaded installation file has disappeared from my hard drive, presumably as a result of using one of the removal tools. When I try to reinstall Office, I get the following error mesage "Microsoft Office Ultimate encountered an error during setup" and the installation stops. I've discovered one Office entry in both control panel and appwiz. It is Microsoft Office 2007 Service Pack2 [SP2] and neither control panel or appwiz will allow it's removal, returning the error "This package could not  be opened. Verify the patch package exists and tha you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer patch package. I should add, I've manually deleted the OGA file, leaving the .bak version, the wizard would not do it, claiming a version conflict. And last, will restoring my PST archive restore any of the troublesome files?

    Thanks in advance with your help over this final hurdle.
