    I am posting this link here in case anyone else runs into this problem with their Go.

    If you install a licensed copy of Office that is activated by logging in to a licensing server, even though your copy of Office shows that it's activated, every time you open one of the Office applications, you are nagged to try, buy, or activate.

    Somehow, I munged Office during uninstall/reinstall and the MS Office repair/remove tool didn't work. I tried repeatedly and even did the manual cleanup.

    MS tech support was no help at all (and didn't call me when they'd scheduled a call back). I finally ended up reinstalling Windows and then all my software this morning. There's no telling how many hours I have wasted trying to resolve this issue, but it's done so now I can actually start using my Go.

    I hope to have time later today or tomorrow morning to mention some of the things I've tried with my Go.

    That is great tip! What procedure did you use for reinstalling Windows 10?

    Are you using Win 10 Pro?

    I am using Windows 10 Pro. I used whatever the procedure is in Control Panel. Don't remember the exact steps, looked it up. I had it save my files instead of a complete wipe.
