we bought with software with a HP computer, it turns out the desktop is flawed, when we exchange the flawed desktop, the staff from bestbuy refuse to return the office software. it turn out we are unable to use the software any more, because it was installed in the computer that was returned.I tried to contact Microsoft helpdesk , there is not a telephone line available to for us to call! We did nothing wrong, we paid the software, we can NOT use it!

Typical Office Products

Typical Office products, it came really quickly and was very easy to install. It is frustrating to have to buy this every time I upgrade my computer, and although the Best Buy price was the same as everywhere else out there this really is way overpriced for what it is, but preferable to the annual "subscription" you have to pay with other Office packages.

Office Home & Student - English

Good program, easy to use but because can only be installed on 1 PC, therefore I feel it should be a little cheaper.

Installation Problems

Would not install after a few attempts. Had to run "Fix It' then it worked. Next issue- the icons are nowhere to be found. Had to call for assistance.

Installs only once!

CD installation is preferable to downloading 700mb. Also, I have two computers but was denied permission to install on more than one. This is a big disadvantage. Now I cannot share documents between computers; will have to buy it again. The product itself is OK.

Install is annoying

Had to download 700MB from the internet to install. I would have preferred a DVD by far. I screwed up by not having a valid Microsoft id at install so the activation key did not activate properly and could not be reused.. The telephone activation by MS was slick and corrected the situation. I prefer older versions of Office - I find this version is a bit much.
