O.K. so I'm a student and got a computer through one of those rent-to-own places. It seems to have a trail version of Microsoft Office Small Business Edition 2003 already installed. I have 50 uses of this program and then it turns to reduced functionality mode. How do I make this become a full-version? I have yet to see/find an activation wizard.

you will have to purchase the full version to make it not a trial version...you should check out your UNI's bookstore they may have an education version that would cost less than the regular version

ok...but the disks and case I have for this program do not say trial version anywhere on it. it just says that I need to activate this within 50 uses to make it become the full version. Should I try uninstalling and reinstalling it myself?

I found that and it told me it is already activated...but I still get a request to 'agree' to the User End Licensing....thing. Is this supposed to happen?

well, it did the first handful of times, but the last two times i just tried it (after reading your last post) it no longer does it! I guess I should say thank you for being patient with me :tazz:
