I'm sure that this has been discussed umpteen times here(maybe not) and I'm not sure if its the right forum but recently I reinstalled windows XP and now when opening word it asks to enter the code or something or other, I have entered a authenticity code from the documents that i have, everthing was already installed when I bought it, but regardless it still wont open, I'm not sure if im making sense here but I hope somebody can help me out, many thanks.

Its probably needing to be "Activated"?

But unless you tell us exacly what it's asking for its hard to be of much more help.
"the code or something or other" is not quite enough.

Activation is done over the web or by phone.
