    The winword /r command worked beautifully. Highly recommend, as all other troubleshooting methods did not work for me. Thanks a lot.

    I bought a new computer with a trial version of Word 2010. I uninstalled Word 2010 and installed Word 2007. My version of Word 2007 doesn’t check for serial number, so I can install it on my 4 computers. I can prepare a document in Word 2007, but everytime I try to save it, Microsoft asks for my registration serial number for Word 2010. Is there a way to remove this check and just use Word 2007?
