Uninstall Office completely before upgrading your your Windows. Follow steps told here: Office Validation After Reinstall. Second post tells the exact procedure, even if the OP's situation is not similar than yours.

Kari - has it spot on. Uninstall Office completely, upgrade Windows, then reinstall and validate Office. All will be good.
