  • Windows Vista Home Premium is the operating system installed on your Acer laptop.  It's very likely your Microsoft Office 2007 application is only a trial version.  To continue to use the Microsoft Office 2007 application after the trial period has ended, you'll need to purchase a product key for it.

    Please see the following:

    Note:  The product key located on the bottom of your Acer laptop is for the Windows Vista operating system and not for Microsoft Office.
