I have office 2003 student and it worked fine then suddenly stopped. The licence says it is ok to use it on 3 machines. It is working well on machine 1 but now on my machine it has lost most of the buttons - they are greyed out. I have reloaded it; searched the microsoft site; searched the web for greyed out buttons but no luck. Any ideas? Your help will be much appreciated.
I have had a look on the Microsoft site, and unless I am mistaken, it can be installed 3 times, but only used on one machine at a time. I am assuming you bought the software for home use (One user)and that it is an OEM product i.e. Microsoft has registered the software for the configuration of machine 1, and when machine two is started it brings up a license block.

OK so far thanks for ideas- activation could be the problem but the activate button in HELP will not go anywhere! aaaaagh! Any more ideas?? And below is the detail from Microsoft website. Licensing and Compatibility Q. How many activations/installations will be allowed for each license of the Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003? A. You can install Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 on up to three computers in your home without having to buy extra licenses. Get software for the entire family and save money. I am legal here and I have paid the full price.
OK - the help disabled items - nothing there. Have done a reload and repair - no go. The steve fix - looks promising but too late to try now. Thanks for your help so far. Will try again tomorrow ....and all I wanted to do was type a letter? Mike
