    Hi there,

    I have Windows XP, home edition, and am trying to change the registred owner of Office so that files are shown with my name, and not the previous owner of the computer. I have looked up how to do this using the registry editor, but the last subfolders you need to change are not listed in my editor. These folders are {00000409-78E1-11D2-B60F-006097C998E7} and {90280409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0050048383C9}. I am pretty sure they're not there, but I have MS Office running on my computer. Could someone help me?

    Many thanks.

    I don't have the installation dc as the software came installed on the computer, and I can't change the registry because I don't have the folders in the registry. Help!:eek:

    Ah, I have Office 2003 Professional. I'm guessing that's why I couldn't find the two numbered subfolders. Does anyone know how to change the registered user for the professional version?
