I woke up my computer from hibernation this morning and found a nag popup telling me I need to reboot to finish the installation for the updates.
Very annoying since I didn't ask for the updates, and I have good reasons I hibernate rather than shut down.
I started powerpoint to continue a presentation I'd been working on and found I was in a new version. I had installed office 2002 when I bought my Windows 7 machine, but now I have office 2007 (I think - I haven't found Help-About yet. I don't know how to navigate this new version).
The problem is, I didn't order an office upgrade, and when I open an app, it asks me for the product key. I don't have an office 2007 product key since I didn't buy the upgrade. I don't NEED an upgrade. Office 2002 works fine for me.
Perversely, I do need an upgrade for Outlook, but it did NOT upgrade Outlook!
Anyway, I guess this is trial-ware, and will stop working after an evaluation period.
Now what? When it stops working I need my Office 2002 back, but I can't find my Office 2002 install DVD. I misplaced it since I used it on my new machine about 3 months ago.
Okay - that was the most important question.
The second question is - how did I get this upgrade without asking for it?
