Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007

What is Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007?

Office 2007 contains a number of new features, the most notable of which is the entirely new graphical user interface called the Fluent User Interface (initially referred to as the Ribbon User Interface), replacing the menus and toolbars – which have been the cornerstone of Office since its inception – with a tabbed toolbar, known as the Ribbon. Office 2007 also includes new applications and server-side tools. Chief among these is Groove.


The most used version is 12.0.6612.1000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is Microsoft Office 2003 Editionen 60-Tage-Testversion.exe. The software installer includes 63 files and is usually about 213.02 MB (223,364,336 bytes).
