office 2007 trial

I tansferred my old computer files with Office 2003 to a new windows 7
computer. When I try to open an office document it tries to install an
office 2007 trial. How do I disable that. Can't find any office 2007
trial files in program list to delete. Office 2003 is fine for me.

When you go to Programs and Features in Win 7 you do not see anything for
office 2007 trial or an activation assistant? If you do you must uninstall
both the trial and the activation assistant then install your Office 2003
program and fully update it.

I see no office trial program to uninstall.

I do see an microsoft office live add in 1.4 but not sure if that it.

Nope Live is something else. Did you install the compatibility pack for
Office 2007? And did you install Office 2003 from the original setup disks
and update fully or get it onto your new computer some other way?

Installed 2003 from the original disks. Never installed the 2007
compatibility pack.

Thanks for answering the questions but if you see no Office 2007 software or
trial on the Control Panel Programs and Features there are only a few places
that could be trying to install that software.

When you say you are trying to open an office document I am assuming that
you are double clicking on the filename from either Computer or Windows
Explorer and that is when you see the "installation" message. What happens
if you open the 2003 program first and open the file from there? If it
opens successfully without any messages then you somehow have a file
association error that would need to be fixed. Does the message appear for
all different file types (.doc, .xls, .ppt) or just one file type?

If you get the same message opening a file after starting the program first,
post back with the exact wording of the message received about installing.

Doesn't happen if I open the program first. Seems like it happens when I
receive a e-mail file with a document attached and click on it.
