If you didn't try to reinstall you could have used Belarc Advisor found at http://www.belarc.co...e_download.html
to give you the Product ID and the Product key you need. It's a cool program I'd download it anyway. Edited to please the forum Policeforum - A public meeting or assembly for open discussion.
Also I am not a lawyer just a hacker/Programmer idealist dreamer so I can't tell you how Legal this is.
I'm assuming you have a right to the program since you bought it ... I'm also assuming you are telling the truth.
Anyway I seldom use Word anyway check out Open Office or for a simple Word replacement try AbiWord
. Perhaps it's not as pretty but it works for me.
hope this helps
