Avoid time-out issues with Office 2007
The new year brought Microsoft a couple of unpleasant surprises--the betas of Microsoft Expression and Microsoft Windows Defender timed out, which means the software wouldn't load and users faced the option of resetting their system clocks to 2006 or waiting for the patch to fix the problem. In a smart move to circumvent that kind of problem, the Microsoft Office group sent a message reminding beta users of the various time-out dates:
If you are using one of the products on the list, be sure to backup and uninstall (or upgrade) your software before the end date. You'll be able to find more information on Microsoft Office Online.
If you still haven't tried Office 2007, you can sign up for a 30-day trial at Microsoft Office Online. The big release is just a couple of weeks away.
