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.

How do I do a clean reinstall


You just need a Windows Operating System Disc. It will walk you through the process. When it comes to the part where it see that you already have a windows operating system on the drive, you have the option of deleting it and clearing the partion then reformat the drive using NTFS Quick.
Make sure you use the same version of the windows operating system that you already have unless you buy a new copy. In other words, if your Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker (located on the case of the computer) says you have Windows XP Professional, you can't reinstall with a Windows XP Home version because when it comes to the point where it asks you for the key to activate you will be in trouble.

Hi My son decided to completely clear his Packard bell M1610 and i don't hav the recovery discs.Is ther anything i can do?(Apart from throttle my son)


When you mean he decided to clear his computer out. You probably mean he either deleted files,folders and programmes off his computer.

You have 2 options

1. Contact the computer shop you bought the PC from or the manufacturer Pacard Bell giving them the machine number in both cases and explain to them that you do not have the Recovery CD and can they post one out to me

or

2. Purchase a copy of an Operating System (either Windows Vista or Windows XP) and a copy of Office 2003 (XP) 2007 (Vista) and install a fresh copy on your machine.

Microsoft office home and student 2007 25 digit key


Hello,

When you buy a new computer, quite frequently it will come with a trial version of MS Office installed. To get the 25-digit product key, you would need to buy the full version from microsoft.com or in any software store.

As a free alternative: OpenOffice is a free application which is 100% compatible with all MS Office applications. You can download this for free from www.openoffice.org.

Thanks for using the FixYa forums!

dear tiffy,

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.

thanks,

simply you can remove the second option in the boot.ini.

go to the or right click the my computer at the desktop and the properties. and then click"advance TAb" in the start up and recovery, click "setting" and then "edit"

you will see this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Timeout=30 change to: 0

and then delete this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
after deleting you must save it.

and then restart the system

Please leave a comment b4 your rate, Thanks!
