Can you please look at the screeshot and explain couple of things please:

I have installed Ms-Office 2010 Home and Business using a DVD. Though it's saying Home Business 2010 is activated but it also list Office 2010 Pro as a trial product. This says it will expire in 25 days...do I need to worry about Home Business version after 25 days?

If what you want is Home and Business and not Professional, then no, you do not need to worry about it. What I would do is click on the link and remove it. .... Thinkpads_User

You have TWO installs (H&B and Pro)...

H&B is OK and activated...
Pro is still under trial...

After the trial expires you will lose the ability to run its unique components: Access and Publisher.

If that is OK, you can ignore the issue.
If you NEED those components, you will need to procure a valid key to activate the other license.

Many thanks both thinkpads_user and n2fc. I have one additional question. Is it OK to install Home and Business in computers connected to a domain? Do I loose any features with that. Thanks again.

It should not matter about the domain. Install Home and Business on the client locally with all the feature you wish (I usually do a full install except for any languages foreign to me). It is installed locally so it does not matter workgroup or domain. .... Thinkpads_User
