Windows 7: Hard Drive and Microsoft Office

Hard Drive and Microsoft Office

So, my cousins hard drive decided to crash one day so he took it to Best Buy (mistake) because it was under warranty, they ran a test (doubtful) and said that his hard drive was corrupt. They put in a new one and gave him the old one back. I hooked it up to my computer via USB and everything came up perfectly. My question is this, how do I get the Microsoft Office product key from that hard drive?

Hello Letsdoamazing,

If Microsoft Office is installed and activated on the new current hard drive, then you can use the free program ProduKey to see it's product key number.

Hope this helps,

I have been having bad luck with hard drives lately. The original WD drive in my W7 i7 PC died about a month ago as a result of a brief power failure in my area. My local shop installed another WD (500TB) unit which seemed to have issues from the start (failed the WDC test utilities). So I...

To whom this may concern: Not very important topic, but bothering all the same. When I bought my computer a short while ago, it came loaded with quite an array of programs apart from Windows 7. Some were useful, others less so. Some I discarded, others I kept. Among the latter, a 'starter'...
