Old laptop had msxp. Best buy moved everything to new lt (vista). Now, when i open a ms office file a note ask for me to enter the product key, i click close (don't have key #) another note says i can use ms office for 16 times and pay $300 for their program. Then the file opens, i copy/paste to ms works task, complete my work and save the file back to the folder.
Question; 1. Did use one of the 16 times towards the $300 ?
2. Is it ok to cpoy/paste each file, save to it's folder and not pay ?

Thanks for your help
