How do I verify that product ID has not been used?

I have been given a small task of finding out if the product keys in Windows and Office have already used. Is there a utility on the web that I can go to and use to verify that the license has not been already used?

No.

Visit http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html and download the free
Belarc Advisor. After running the program, look under the section
titled "Software Licenses".

Tom;
No, there is no way to tell if a specific key has been used.
There are tools you can use to identify the Product Key used to install on a
specific computer.
