  4. If it is installed on your computer you can use Keyfinder to retrieve it.
    If it is not installed anywhere then you need to contact MS.

  5. Unless you can find the original packaging, I doubt it. The MS Office 2000
    key code is not stored on the computer. The best you will find on the
    computer is the product ID which will not enable you to re-install it...

  9. Are you sure that it is the key code and not just the product ID?

    Does it show 5 blocks of 5 characters, or does it appear differently?

    I've always heard that it was Office '97 that nothing could retrieve the key
    for... I no longer have Office 2000 installed, so I can't verify the other
    posters claim. Of course, Office '97 was easy to just "create" a key for by
    using a bunch of 1's and randomly trying other numbers in one of the
    positions (5th position maybe?).

    Hello, everyone. This is strange. Has anyone turned the computer upside
    down and look at the bottom panel? I found my there right under the upc
    codes. It's a series of 5 sets, each of which has 5 numbers or symbols
    or combination of both. Mine is a Dell though. Maybe it's different than
    other makes.

  13. That's probably the product code for Windows. The OP is asking about
    Office.
