installing genuine office 2007 after non-genuine version RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,


    After installing Office 2007 I found out, it was a non-genuine version.


    Now that I have a genuine one, I cant get rid of the old one, because -even after complete uninstall- it still uses the old (bad) serial number.

    How can I get rid of the old (non genuine) version, so I can have a clean install of the right one?
