Office Get Genuine Warnings

Microsoft with it's update cycle has released an update which checks to see if the version of Office on a computer is genuine. This is similar to what is happening with the operating system. A lot of customers will be surprised, especially those who have had the computer setup by a well meaning family member of friend who "borrowed" some office disks from their work.

The biggest shock will be the cost of getting genuine. I haven't got the details of actual charges but the retail cost of Office professional runs at over $500 much more than the $240 cost for the operating system get genuine campaign.

I can see that a lot more people will get caught out as well because most computers come with XP or Vista but Office needs to be purchased as an extra.
