    XP home edition refers to the windows version on your computer. You need a copy of Microsoft Office to create and edit word and excel documents. Do you have a MS Office disk?

Move your essential files into the other system, check them on that system, look if it will open or no?  it's better to install a .NET framework program before installing the office program, reboot your system, then install ofice again, and check it

You can uninstall it like this:

You can uninstall a program from your computer if you no longer use it or if you want to free up space on your hard disk. You can use Programs and Features to uninstall programs or to change the program's configuration by adding or removing certain options.

  1. Open Programs and Features by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Programs and Features.

  2. Select a program, and then click Uninstall. Some programs include the option to change or repair the program in addition to uninstalling it. but many simply offer the option to uninstall. To change a program, click Change or Repair. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

I need the free permenent product key for my laptop type aspier 4736g,because always i open my microsoft word exel it request


Your computer probably came with a "30-day-free-trial" version of Microsoft Excel. So, after the 30 days, you have to PURCHASE a permanent product-key, if you want to keep using the software.

Remember, you clicked "I agree" the first time that you opened Excel, namely agreeing to accept the 30-day trial-period.

Or, uninstall Microsoft Office, and download *FREE* office-productivity software from http://www.openoffice.org
This software can read/write your existing Excel documents.
