All "genuine" versions of Microsoft Office require Product Activation.

Please visit http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/office/WhyValidate.aspx
and click on Validate Office.  Afterward, report back to this tread with the
outcome and any messages shown.

Yup, an illegal copy which I will delete.
Enterprise has "taken over" my Office 2003 Outlook.
All data and settings have been migrated to Enterprise 2007 Outlook.
Will I be able to get Office Outlook 2003 with all the settings and data
after I delete Enterprise 2007?
Word 2003 and Excel 2003 are available in All Programs, but not Outlook
2003.

Only one version of Outlook can be installed at any one time, so you will
need to re-install Outlook 2003.

Thanks.
I have started a new thread " How do I keep my Outlook Setting and Data" -
more to the point now.
