A lot will depend on what version of Office was on the machine, is this one laptop that you are both sharing or two machines, one each ?

Office installations pre-installed on PC's are 99% certain to be Trial installations.
It is possible to activate these installations by either purchasing a valid Office License, or by activating the optional (add-based) Starter Edition.

It is also possible to install a full version of Office 2010 (or other version) and to activate that.
There is NO such thing as a free version of MS Office - although the Starter edition may appear as such, it relies on advertising revenue, and may complain if ads cannot be served (I haven't tried that!)
