    I've had MS Office 10+ years or so. never paid for it. The last couple weeks I've been getting a nag screen that it's not genuine and need to authenticate.

    Today the nag screen says in 11 days it will be marked as not genuine.

    Anyone know what will happen in 11 days -- Will it stop working completely? How can I get rid of the nag screen and stop the authentication stuff?

    Thanks and rep for response that works.

    Don't know if it works, but worth a try

    Hey BenQs,

    It won't stop working but a nag screen will come up every time you try to run an Office product. You will also have a nice big "button" on commands ribbon. Everything will work as normal, it's just a bit annoying.

    If the above does not work, try the below fix.


    Code:

    Then go to
    Code:
    http://microsoft.com/genuine
    and validate Office.

    Hope that helps!

    Blue edition is good (what I have installed) but after updates, such as oga, it will not pass validation and come back as not genuine.
