Document that Office license key.
Literally, write it on paper.

Belarc Advisor can retrieve your Office license.

For this, not a "reset", but rather a full wipe and reinstall.

 
Make sure you have the product key for older versions. For newer versions. Make sure it is registered to your Microsoft account by finding your license on the Microsoft account page.

Once you are sure you have the license info. You can do a clean install and reinstall office.
