    I purchased an HP laptop with a pre-installed 60day trial version of Office
    2007. I then purchased a copy of Office Professional 2007 and installed it.
    Yet the trial version still seems to be THE version the PC uses. Word etc is
    using the trial version as on opening a document (TRIAL) is shown at top of
    page. Any ideas on how to get it to recognise the new version and drop the
    trial?

    Some research would have told you to uninstall both the Trial version AND
    the Activation assistant and do a re-boot before installing your paid-for
    version.
    You now need to uninstall all three, Trial, Activation Assistant AND your
    paid-for version, re-boot and re-install your paid-for version.
