    So a friend foolishly installed a cracked MS office on their MBA some time ago. It continues to work fine but they finally bought a license for it. Now they can't uninstall it and install regular office without it still showing the cracked license, owner's name, etc. Anyone know how to un-crack this so they can enter the (paid) serial?

    Honestly, I wouldn't bother. Office is a huge pain to uninstall. He's done the right thing and purchased a license. It doesn't make much difference if it shows on his Mac.

    But if he really, really wants to, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2398768

    Why waste your money if the cracked version is working fine?

    Because otherwise it's called stealing.
