Healthy Life

I believe that everybody wants to have a healthy life, no matter who they are. Health is a very precious thing, sadly most people doesn’t take their health seriously. They want a healthy life, but they didn’t live healthily. On the contrary, their lifestyle is often unhealthy if not downright self destructing.

How can you expect to be healthy if you don’t even want to break a sweat? How can one expect to be healthy if they didn’t exercise regularly and not to mention eating a healthy diet?

Microsoft Office Picture Manager Expired

The Need: To be able to use Microsoft Office Picture Manager to edit pictures or photos.

The Problem: Microsoft Office Picture Manager showed the license expired pop up every time the program is opened.

The Solution: Installed the Microsoft Office 2007 Service Pack 2.


Yesterday, a coworker of mine asked me to help her. She usually uses Microsoft Office Picture Manager to edit photos and pictures. She is using Microsoft Office 2007 Small Business Edition which should include the Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Lately though, every time she opened the program to edit something, the trial license expired window always pops up.

It was strange because as far as I know, the Microsoft Office Picture Manager is available as an add-on tool that can be used for free with a purchase of a licensed Microsoft Office Suite. Another one of my coworker which is using Microsoft Office 2003 Small Business can use hers without any problem, so I am sure that the problem lies with the Microsoft Office 2007.
