In May I bought a copy of Office Home and Student 2007 and it said that I could upgrade to Office 2010 when it came out. Now when I try to upgrade to Office 2010 it says I have not activated Office 2007 even though I have activated all the programs. I did get office 2007 professional from my friend and added the extra programs it came with to my computer.
All the programs are genuine.

JUst verify with you, you can't mix different versions of Office 2007, even If you only take a few prgrams from each. Uninstall both versions and reinstall your original install copy, then it will work.

You need to remove the unauthorized copy of Office 2007 Professional from your system, and perhaps reinstall & reactivate your authorized copy of Office Home & Student 2007, and try again. You can't mix and match like that with an unauthorized copy and expect to be able to take advantage of the Home & Student 2007 to Office 2010 upgrade.
