How do I extract my Microsoft Office product key from my computer?

I'm getting a new hard drive for my laptop because the old one is corrupted (or something like that). However, I can't find the Microsoft Office product key that I used to install Microsoft Office way back when. And of course I don't want to have to pay for Microsoft Office all over again when I get the new hard drive. When I asked the tech guy at Best Buy if they have a way to get the product key off of the computer, he said, "WE can't get it because it's illegal... but YOU can..." But he didn't have specific advice on how to do it other than to find methods by Googling. Does anyone know a reliable way to do this that works and won't give my computer a virus or something?
