Re-install Office 2008 for Mac

Hi there,

I recently bought a Macbook Air and a friend of mine installed an illegal version of Office 2008 for Mac. No, I know this is wrong so I bought an legal version and want to install it. To be sure I don't get version conflicts I want to de-install the illegal version and install the legal version. Question is, should I backup my Entourage info, or is it just like with Outlook preserved automatically and can I de-install the first and just install the new one?

Hope to hear from someone soon?

Best regards,

Lufaa

Lufaa,

If this was illegal, I would not trust it at all.
It may have contained Viruses, Malware, ...etc
(If I recently had Swine flu and I sneezed on you, would you trust me or get tested?)
;-)

You should always be backing up any sensitive date anyway...

Just My 2c

No need to reinstall.  Just set it to your legal serail number by following this link
