    If I recall correctly, there should be a seperate shortcut called "Register Office 2010 Trial" or something to that effect that should allow you to enter the serial, provided that the version of the trial matches the one you bought.  If you deleted the shortcut, then it will probably be easier to uninstall the trial version, then install the full version and re-run the updates for it thru Windows Update.

    Go to the Windows Control Panel, Programs and Features (“Add or Remove Programs” in some versions of Windows), select Office 2010 in the list of programs and choose ‘Change’.

    This will start the setup program and show an ‘Enter a Product Key’ option

    Isn't there an option called "change product key" (or something like that) under "File"->"Help"?
