    My pal has Windows 8 installed in her netbook. She also has a the latest version of MS office installed. The only problem? I think that her MS Office is not genuine. Whenever she opens a Word or Excel or PPT document, it says that "Product Activation Failed" and the top bar becomes red. She still could use every feature though. Will this continue forever?

    Windows 8 and Microsoft Office come with their own licence and registry key.

    If Office came installed with the computer, it should no have any trouble. If Windows 8 is not genuine, then the error should be showing off since she starts the computer.

    However it this is not the case, her Windows 8 could be genuine, but Microsoft Office may not, or who installed the software thought to add the Windows license rather than the Office licence.

    Either case she should have received the installation disks, where the licence key is printed, or if all the software is pre-installed, licenses are commonly added as labels stuck somewhere in the computer.

    Matter to check for these before trying other solutions.
