Which Product Key are you using to activate Office 2007? The one affixed to
the laptop is for Windows, not Office. If you received a preinstalled trial
version of Office 2007, then you likely need to purchase a Product Key to
activate it. Check your system documentation for details.

Preinstalled Vista systems from major manufacturers do not require
activation or insertion of a Product Key.

You hate Microsoft because Dell took so long? That's like hating Ford
because your mechanic took too long to rotate the tires.

That's because your support come from Dell (or whatever manufacturer you
bought from). Microsoft supports retail disks. Support for preinstalled
systems comes from the system maker. This has been the case for many, many
years. If you want Microsoft to deal with Dell's modified installation, you
need to expect to pay for it.

Toshiba, like Dell, sells preinstalled systems and is responsible for
support of the operating system. From recent reports I've seen, their
support is worse than Dell's.
If you wish to avoid Microsoft, then might I suggest you look into any of
the multitude of free linux distributions and openoffice.org. I suspect you
won't like the (lack of) support you find with those products either, but
they'll cost you far less.
