alright, first off, i am NOT asking for links to any sites w/ serials since its against the rules. What i simply need to know is this: I know a while back Microsoft did some shit that pretty much made pirated copies of windows and other programs useless pretty much. i know a few people running them, and they have had all kinds of popups and such saying that they have an illegal copy. So, does this mean that if i find some serials for Office 2003, that they won't work? The reason is that i need them to register Office on my moms new laptop she bought. it already has the software installed, it just needs the serials put in. any advice would be appreciated. and, i don't think this is going against any rules, but if it is, then let me know and i'll correct it.
