Windows 7: OK to activate Office 2007 again?

OK to activate Office 2007 again?

I just today had to reinstall/restore Win 7 Home Premium. Now, my question is, since I have already installed Office several times on my computer, is there going to be a big issue when I resintall Office? I mean if I have to reactivate it will MS go wild and say this has already been activated 3 times previously, even if on the same computer?

There should be no issue in re-activating as you are still using Office on the same machine/hardware. The problems will arise if you try to activate on another machine while still using your current machine.

it should be ok, especially as it's the same machine.

re-installs are a fact of computing life, unfortunately.

*oops someone got there first!*

And, if there is a problem activating MS Office, a phone call to MS Support can remedy that.
