    my microsoft 2007 trial is not working because i modified some changes to it by going to "start" button, click "run", type "regedit", went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Office/12.0/Registration/{91120000-0014-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE and deleted "product id" and "digital id" and then i closed it. Then i clicked "start", went to "run", typed in: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en, then i opened the "proof.xml" in notepad, then i changed the section at the bottom where it says </Feature>
    <Feature Id="SetupXmlFiles" Cost="1248">
    <OptionRef Id="alwaysInstalled"/>
    </Feature>
    </Package> and i changed "alwaysinstalled" to "neverinstalled". then my microsoft doesnt work. I can open my stuff but i cannot type or do anything. I also cannot uninstall it and cannot install any new or reinstall any old microsoft office programs. HELP PLZ PLZ PLZ!
