Microsoft Office 60 day trial!

I have a second user HP dv6 notebook. I'm a complete luddite with computers and I inadvertantly pressed the wrong button when something 'popped up' about trialling an updated version of Microsoft Office whilst online - since then i have had no access at all to my original Office and none to the 60day trial!!. I click on the icon (which now has 60 day trial beneath it and nothing happens - all the updates for my Office programme are in the control panel but I don't know what to do to retrieve the original and get rid of this **bleep** 60 day trial that I didn't want.. Any help would be appreciated. thank you

Re: Microsoft Office 60 day trial!

Look in the Programs and Features list in Control Panel see if you can uninstall the Office trial

Re: Microsoft Office 60 day trial!

Thank you Mumbodog. There are so many windows files i don't want to delete/uninstall the wrong one! I found the 60 day trial but not where you suggested to look - not sure where now, should have written it down!

Re: Microsoft Office 60 day trial!

Hi,

 

This is what I really hate. They put in many things to a new machine and sometimes very hard to remove them. Please use this method:

Hope this helps.

 

Regards,

Re: Microsoft Office 60 day trial!

Hi Bh

 

I'll have to print those instructions off in order to follow them to the letter, however it does seem that you may have given me the solution that i need, so thank you. If it works I'll get back to you if that's alright. i'll hit the kudos button anyway.

 

thanks again , Fae :smileyhappy:

  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Under Programs, click Uninstall a program.
  3. Select the trial version you want to uninstall.
  4. Click Uninstall, then Continue. You may need to restart your computer.

Re: Microsoft Office 60 day trial!

Hi, i've looked in the control panel and there are so many 'microsoft applications' and there isn't one saying 60 day trial so I'm loath to do any uninstalling in case i wipe something i shouldn't because of my ignorance. I did tell you i am a luddite and computers scare me!
