Access to ms word is blocked on windows 2000me

  browsing 22:32 02 May 2008

I recently got bt broadband installed on dell computer. Now I cannot access Ms word on the MS 2000 ME programmes. A friend has tried to reinstall Word using the original disc. When I try to access word a notice appears to the effect that the following information will be used by your Word InStallation.I do enter the requesteed user name, initials,and a 25 character cd key no.It refuses to accept this number.I have found about three of these numbers on the computer but none seem to be valid.How can I overcome this problem. Everything else is working well on my seven year old Dell computer with broadband.

I do not think the installation of BroadBand has anything to do with the 'Word' program Problem as such.
Please identify the exact operating system.
Go to 'My Computer'/ Help/ about. to find this.

If you have to 'Word' disk and the corrected key number. - This number will not be on the computer but on the accomanying documentation with the disk.
Run the disk and it should offer the opportunity to repair or reinstall.

I found the correct key number on another disc in the original Microsoft Works Suite. I have now once again gained access to Word thanks to your information and advice.Again a million thanks.
