Hi Tomtaylorsal,

If that is the case then you can install it back in the computer using the CD for either Microsoft Works or Microsoft Office, so it's fairly easy. Worst case, if you don't have the CD's with you, then you may try to contact the place were you got the PC (store, or computer manufacturer) at rare times, they tend to forget to include the CDs when they send the package.

If they are not able to provide you a CD at all then then last option I would recommend is downloading a free version of office called OPENOFFICE which is by Sun Microsystems. It works and looks very similarly like MSOFFICE you can check this out at: just click on "Download" and it will start downloading. Then just install and follow the instructions.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

How do you wipe everything off a PC except the operating system?

Just uninstall the programs from the program list. Click Start/Programs and normally programs with a folder might have an uninstall option when you open the folder.

You can also click Start/Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs and then hightlight the program you want to uninstall and click uninstall or remove.

    You shouldn't have lost anything unless you deleted it. Just by moving the computer will not lose any programs.

    When i try to type anything in any of my microsoft works programs the letters dont work. but all the other keys work. what can i do to fix it

    1. Uninstall and reinstall Microsoft office
    2. Install and antispyware and antivirus and make sure your pc is not effected with any such things which might attach them selves with the .dll files of the office and not letting you to type anything
    3. close all the other applications which are consuming most of the CPU usage (This can be checked by going to task manager under performance)
    4. Generally when the office program stop responding there is file known as hungapp.exe which stops working due to which the office stops to respond.
    Hence it is strongly advised to follow all the above mentioned steps

    Thanks and REgards
