    You likely have been finding the Windows product key not the Office 2007 one. It's possible that your computer came pre-installed with a demo copy of Office and now, after the demo has expired, you have to buy the license. Best to contact the retail outlet where you bought the computer.
    If you have a pirated copy we copy we can't help you.

    Exactly! What you had was a 60 day TRIAL version of Office. After 60 days the trial's functionality is limited unless you PURCHASE a license. You may be able to purchase a license for Office 2007 more cheaply since 2010 is out. Otherwise you will have to get 2010 and upgrade.
