Microsoft Office Professional Plus 10 authentication code help, please?

I bought a Thinkpad through Gumtree (UK) last year and now Microsoft Office Professional Plus 10 is asking me for an authentication code. When I got the computer, windows had just been installed but I don't know if I got a trial version or a corporate version that was imaged onto the machine. Do I need to pay for an authentication code or is there a way to otherwise disable the authentication request message?

Any Microsoft Word wizards interested in helping out with a little find/replace question?

Any Microsoft Word wizards interested in helping out with a little find/replace question? I have a document with hundreds of lines of text that begin like this: "101 0 Music player..... 102 0 The interim... 103 0 Beneath the..." I need to keep the first group of digits but remove that 0, so that the result looks like this: "101 Music player..... 102 The interim... 103 Beneath the..." One added dimension: that second digit is not always a 0; sometimes it's another digit. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Microsoft Word replacing text at random

I have a document in MS Word 2007 that includes a bunch of Mathtype (ver 6.7a) equations both inline and numbered. There are certain sections of text in my document that are magically changing from regular Times New Roman to a series of boxes (). A random number of the boxes have what appears to be a period directly underneath it. I can delete all the boxes and re-type in the text and references but after I save and close the document, when I open it back up, the boxes will be back in the same general area of the document but not necessarily exactly the same amount of text changed.

Best apps for saving and editing word docs on iPad?

I am looking for an app for my iPad that allows me to save word documents from the Internet, open them and edit them preferably with a handwriting ability, on the iPad without having to filter them through googledocs or convert them to PDFs. I am basically looking to eliminate having to go through another normal computer from the process so that I can download, view and edit my class note outlines right in class on my iPad. Any app suggestions? I am willing to invest a bit of money in an app if it does what I want.
