Pavilion B&O - Microsoft Software Issue

HP Recommended
Pavillion B&O i3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have just purchased a Pavillion B&O from Vodacom in South Africa. I have my own Microsoft Software. I uninstalled the Office version that came with the laptop (30 day trial) and installed my own Microsoft Office 2016 Proffessional Plus package. When opening excel for the first time the system asked me to input the serial number which I did and happily carried on working and saving spreadsheets. After closing excel and opening again i was once again asked to register the software? This has never happened before? it also happens with all the other Microsoft software i.e Outlook etc. Please help.

You successfully "activated" the product.

Microsoft wants you to "register" (your name, your E-mail ID, and other personal details).

This is optional, and it is quite different from the mandatory "activation".

Click "not now" or "never ask me again".
