Office 2007 Enterprise Non-commercial use
My installation of office 2007, using the school's enterprise dvd and key, is now displaying "non-commercial use" in the title bar of all Office elements. A quick google suggests that this is what is displayed in the Student/Home versions, but this is the proper Enterprise edition.
Any idea how I can get rid of it?

This is by design I think. Its because its the education license which is not allowed to be used for commercial profit. Our copy does that as well, but only on 2007, not on older versions.

It doesnt do it on any other machine in the school, just my laptop. And it never used to do it, its only appeared recently.

acutally, looking at my computer now (re-installed it with win7) its not doing it. I don't think its a big issue, I used it for about a year with it saying non commercial use, but it is strange that it just started.

When you purchased your laptop, it may have had the OEM version of Home & Student already pre-installed. If so, you may find that having overwritten it with Enterprise will have worked fine but some update may have brought the "Non-commercial Use" banner back through.

thats the only reasons for it i can find on Google, but the laptop came with vista and has been flattened over a year ago and downgraded to a fresh xp pro install, so any preinstalled crap has long gone.

I had a funny feeling you were going to tell us that you'd done a fresh install... In that instance, it is still most likely a patch playing up, but as to which one who knows.

No big deal really, it doesnt affect anything just looks a bit weird ;p

You also get that message if use use a technet+ license.

Are you sure? I've never seen that on a Technet or MSDN license.
