    Hi there

    Uninstall Offfice 365 and optionally Office 2016.

    Now re-install Office 2016.

    Job done !!

    I'd also tend to only use a LOCAL account but that's your choice.

    Cheers

    We dont use office 365 at all, we have never installed it on our network, i seems to be a bug were it wants to activate a 365 account that we dont have or use

    When I install office Pro Plus 2016, it prompts for my office 365 account info. There is also an option to enter a product key instead on that same page, which is what I do. Once I do that I'm not prompted for Office 365 login. ever again. Hasn't happened yet anyway, knock on wood. I log in to my PC with my Microsoft Account.
