Office MGA not activated, applications are activated RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a star on the bottom taskbar which says "How to activate office", and I downloaded MGADiag.exe and ran it and it says Office validation status "101 Not Activated", but all the applications (Excel, Word, Access) in the Help dropdown>Activate Office say that office is activated.  I don't want to waste any more time on this - can I get rid of the star?  I have windows XP service pack 3 with auto updates, and Office 2002 OEM
