Dialog box says "cannot find a licence for Word 2010 go to settings to fix this problem" Went to settings and no repair just uninstall. What do I do?

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
Can you tell me which version of windows you are using please?
Thank you
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Windows Vista
Thank you
Can you please close all programs
Click on Start, Control Panel.
Click on Uninstall a program.
Click on Office, then click on Change and Repair.
Let this complete and when it has, restart the computer and open Word and it should then be resolved.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
Else Let me know the results please
