    This is the first time I've read that the Product Key on the bottom of my HP
    Netbook is for Windows and not Office!!!! Now where do I find the Office
    Product Key. Office Home & Student 2007 was installed by HP when I bought it.

    Unless you paid extra for Office H&S its a Trial version, which after expiry
    of the trial you have to uninstall, then buy the version of Office you
    require.
