Where I work I believe they are using several pieces of software - that they have NOT secured the license to. Not an oversight - more of a worry about it later mentality. Anyone know of a USB launched tool that will validate the license of Microsoft Office 2007? The systems are some what locked down and I do not have install privileges. Curious how I validate the number of licenses they are supposed to have with the number of computers it is installed on. They are also using the free version of AD-Aware 2007 to repair malware issues on computers (just cause it's the older version don't make it right!). I have purchased everything I use at home - having paid a lot of my hard earned money over the years for the software that I use for work... they can and should do the same. Any ideas?? Thanks!
