The company i work for offers MS Office to its employees personal use as an 'extra seat' on its contract with MS. Through this program I was able to purchase MS Office Pro for $29. Unfortunately, my little part of the company is being sold off and therefore my 'seat' will no longer be legal. Chances are I could continue to use it indefinitely, but it would not be right and I want to do this correctly. So, I purchased a new copy of MS Office.
Here's the question. I've been told that to install it over the current copy might not update all the serial number/user info and that I might not loose the little "Not for commercial use" banner in the title bar. The recommendation has been to uninstall office and then install my new copy. I've not had a lot of good luck uninstalling the more complex programs in the past and I don't want to fry my laptop. Is there a safe and clean way to do this?
