Windows 7: Problem with Microsoft Office 2010 - activation error code 0xc004f074

Problem with Microsoft Office 2010 - activation error code 0xc004f074

My Microsoft Office package was already activated, until couple days ago while opening Office Word I had this kind of message:

This copy of Microsoft Office has not been activated (*translated from Finnish)


Error code: 0xC004F074

I don't understand what's wrong with this. The message just suddenly came without any major updates taken place. I have tried to google other threads, without any succeed.

Any suggestions?

P.S. I'm quite handy with computers but not an expert, so please instructions which can be understood. :)

The License type here appears to be KMS - which requires a dedicated KMS server to activate against at least every 180 days.

It's a Volume License - if you purchased this license retail, then it's counterfeit.
