We recently had a customer come in that was having issues installing the Office Product they had just purchased. This customer had someone remotely help install the software and it never worked.  The license key for the Office product ended up being registered to the person who had helped them remotely who basically now claimed that license. We started a chat with an ACTUAL Microsoft Tech from a chat request link on the Office registration page who was a tremendous help getting the issue resolved.  The picture to the right is a screen shot from an actual Microsoft support person. Microsoft will not call you about Problems in your computer.
