Sometimes there's no better way to repair a damaged Windows XP install than to start from scratch and reinstall the whole thing. It's a drastic move, but it is almost guaranteed to work. (Only serious hardware issues or incorrectly installed files can cause errors in this case.) If all other options have been exhausted, and your computer still won't function correctly, fear not: After a reinstall it should be running as good as new.

Locate an XP install disk, preferably the one that came with the computer, and any other software packages and drivers. Most of the time these will come packaged with the computer at the time of purchase. To save your data, copy information in your "My Documents" folder and any other important data you might have stored on the hard drive to a flash drive, CD or an external hard drive. Insert the XP install disk into the computer's CD drive and reboot the computer. The computer should automatically boot from the disk, loading the blue Windows XP Setup screen. On some computers, you may need to press a button when prompted to boot from the disk. After the Windows XP Setup has finished loading files, press "Enter" as prompted on the screen to set up Windows XP, and then accept the Licensing Agreement on the next screen by pressing "F8." Navigate the partition menu to find the partition on which Windows XP had previously been installed (likely, there will only be one) and press "D" to delete it. Verify that you want to delete the partition on the screens that follow. Set up a new partition, press "C," set the desired for the partition and press "Enter" to create it. The new partition will now be listed on the previous partition menu. Select the newly partitioned space, and press "Enter" to set up Windows XP on it. The Windows XP Setup program will format the new partition and continue with the graphical user interface portion of the installation process after the computer reboots. Navigate through the set-up menus that follow. The setup program will reboot the computer and load Windows after it has finished installing files. Reinstall any drivers and software that may previously have been installed on the computer by inserting their disks and going through their installation processes. Download Windows updates from Microsoft's website. (See Link Below.)

SOFTWARE MICROSOFT 2007 DOWNLOAD


MS Office 2007 is available here:
http://www.nextag.com/MS-office/shop-html?nxtg=3a570a1c0591-970B8697213DFCAC

Why not just get Office 2010? Office 2010 has the same great basic layout as 2007, just more features, and you can try it for free:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try/

If you don't like the price of Office 2010, try Open Office: http://www.openoffice.org/
Open office will open and save documents as .doc (Microsoft documents) so they can be read by Microsoft Office products. Open Office really is a good product, and it is FREE.

Microsoft also has a free online Office (Skydrive):

Sorry, but if you are looking for a free download of Microsoft Office 2007, we are not allowed to provide that info on this site because it is illegal.

I couldn't download ms office 2007 from any search engine and my standard program files got deleted yesterday so what i have to do to olve the problem to get them back..please correct if i am wrong..


downloading microsoft word 2007 from a search engine is a TERRIBLE idea. this just screams "virus, pleas attack my computer. thank you." if you don't have the disc, your best bet may be restoring your windows to factory image and you iwll have a 30 day trial of word on there. from there you can either purchase a new key or try to find the cd.

Ms office 97 will not suit your vista OS. so either you have to buy a new Ms office product or you can try installing Open office 2.01 software for free.

I don't believe so. You might need an older version of office installed on your pc though.

I have Word from Office 97 on my computer using XP Home operating system. I would like to buy Word 2007. Do I have to delete Office 97 in order to be able to use Word 2007?


No you do not, Office 2007 has an option to save documents as office 97-2003 format. The different office applications may have common files, but will remain separated in your programs list.
