Will installing a legit Office 2010 over a fraudulant 2007 copy remove OGA notifications?

I have several winXP machines with OGA notifications for Office 2007 Professional.

We paid for theses and thought they were legit.  Best forgeries I’ve ever seen… if they were cash I would have spent it without suspecting a thing.

I’m not interested in getting my money back or getting replacement copies from Microsoft.  It won’t be worth the hassle and I want to upgrade to 2010 anyway.

My concern is that the OGA notifications will still be present if I install Office 2010 (full version not upgrade, retail box) over the bad 2007 install.

Does anyone have any experience with this or recommendations on how to handle the problem?
