I downloaded a trial for PKZip and decided I did not need it so I removed the program. I am still getting pop ups every time I open word or excel stating that my trial has ended and there are 3 options on the pop up to "purchase product now", "enter product key" or "remind me later". There is no option to decline. These pop ups come up each time I open a file and it is extremely annoying. I have went through my computer to see if there is something I missed and searched for anything with PKZip in it and have found nothing. It's been going on for over 2 months now. I also bought a Microsoft Office program from a re-seller and get the same pop up from Microsoft stating that "this is not a Microsoft Genuine Product" with no way to get rid of it. I have tried hitting Alt+F4 when the pop ups come up and it only removes it for that instance and it keeps coming up. Any suggestions?

trial for PKZip

Try using Revo Uninstaller, free version

this is not a Microsoft Genuine Product

You did enter the CD key that came in the packing sleeve, correct?
