1. Open regedit and goto:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration



2. Under "Registration" key, you'll see one or more GUID (Globally Unique IDentifiers) containing a combination of alphanumeric characters in following format:

{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}



3. Select each key and look at "ProductName" key in right-side pane. One GUID key will contain the version number of Office installed in your system "Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2007".

4. Select that GUID key and delete following 2 registry entries from right-side pane:

DigitalProductID
ProductID



5. Close registry editor and run any Office application e.g. word, excel, etc. It should prompt you to enter a new product key.

6. Enter the desired product key and click on OK. That's it.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

A. Take a backup of "Registration" key before deleting the registry entries from right-side pane, so that in case the new product key doesnt work you can restore the previous key without any problem. To take backup right-click on "Registration" key and select "Export".

B. If you are a x64 bit Windows user, then the key location will be different in registry. Please check following paths:

Office XP:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\10.0



Office 2003:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\11.0



Office 2007:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\12.0

Another simple way to get rid of Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) is to go to your office button, then click on Excel option (or Word, access ...), then select Add-Ins you should see all your active and Inactive Add-Ins, then check the location. In my case and I would assume it will be the same in your machine; there are 3 files in C:\WINDOWS\system32 which are:
OGACheckControl.dll, OGAAddin.dll and OGAEXEC. Delete the 3 files
ps: make sure you close the program otherwise you won't be able to delete the files.
once you delete those files restart the program and you shouldn't see "not Genuine" thing.
Hope it helps
