Windows 7: Office 2010 regular turned Pro?

Office 2010 regular turned Pro?

Something is not right with my Office 2010. I have several product keys that I purchased and know they are legit. But my computer says I have office 2010 Professional. I never purchased the pro version.

I am not trying to get something for nothing, I just want what I paid for. For the most part, all works well, but every now and then "odd" things happen and I must run "repair".

I have a product key and disc for home office, so how did the pro version show up? I was just going to uninstall and re-install but thought I would ask advice first. Thx KT

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit sp1

As far as I know Office 2010 Home Office does not include MS Access. Access, is however included in the Office 2010 Professional version. Do you have Access on your computer as part of your Office program?.

If you only have a product activation key for Office 2010 Home Office then you probably should uninstall the Pro version & install the correct version that your activation key is licensed for.

If you require MS Access for your home office you should buy the correct activation key for the Professional version of Office 2010.
