    I just purchased a new Lenovo laptop. Because I wanted MS Office Picture Manager I purchased a MS Office Professional Edition 2003 that had never been used. I loaded the 2003 version but every time I use it I'm asked to accept the end-user license. How do I get the software to recognize that I have done that and do not need to do it again.


    I also have a problem when I attempt to open MS Office 2003 as it gives me a popup relating to Office 365 which I do not want. I checked the programs that are listed and it appears there is an Office 365 Icon. Can I safely do an uninstall for that and would that then allow me to open 2003 without that annoying 365 popup?

    Yes chances are that your new machine has an evaluation copy of Office 365. You can choose to uninstall it, but Office 2003 has no official support on Windows 8 or 8.1 so you are gambling if you choose to stay with it. Also all support of Office 2003 ended last April along with Windows XP. You may be able to use it for a bit, but if an update breaks it Microsoft will not help you in any way (just a friendly warning)
    Frankly there are way better programs these days than the old MS Picture Manager.
