If my Office Professional 7 is marked "not genuine" will Microsoft Security Essentials still protect me? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have sent my disks to Microsoft as the validation process said the key had been stolen.  I expect to receive the complimentary Office 7 Professional disks back.  While I am waiting, I am receiving a message, "your copy of Office will be marked not genuine in 6 days".  I am using MS Essentials for virus protection.  Will it continue to work while I wait for the complimentary software?
