I have a copy of Microsoft Office 2000 installed on my computer and the hard drive is beginning to fail. I receive numerous error messages but I am still able to run all of my Office Professional programs. I am running in Windows ME and part of the problem is that due to the partial failure of the drive, I can't even use the control panel. I have run Belarc Advisor and it confirms the drive failure and only gives the ID # of the program. I have tried emailing the manufacturer of the machine (Atlas Micro Logistics) and the address I have for them keeps sending the mail back. I don't believe from my searching that they are in business any longer. (If someone knows otherwise, please let me know how to contact them). Any advice as to how to glean the authentication code from the program would be very much appreciated. I am afraid that at any time the drive will completely fail and I will be SOL.
