Need Office and/or Antivirus product codes ?
When a new PC is sold, retailers install limited licence software.
Microsoft Office is usually one, your antivirus software will probably be another.
This means that, usually after 3, 6 or 12 months the licence runs out and you have to buy a new one.
These are not cheap and invariably you're only supposed to use it on one PC (EULA agreement) and the trouble is, as they hope, you've gotten used to these packages, don't know about or are scared to use other software.
If you want to carry on with MS office, there's probably a box or tab somewhere on the pop up that invites to to click on to buy a licence, if no just google microsoft office and you should get to the website.
The same applies to Antivirus software.
Shop around, there's plenty of sites selling this stuff, and voucher codes which offer a discount. But when you see the prices, you'll probably think that its all a bit expensive, as do I and many others.
I'd recommend logging onto "Filehippo.com" download and install "Open Office", its compatible with and does all the MS office does and more. Its also free.
Other programmes worth downloading are "Ccleaner" (Cleans web rubbish off your PC) "Microsoft security essentials" gives protection against malware and viruses. AVG ( Excellent Antivirus software) and VLC media player (Plays all those files Windows media player doesn't), all good and all free.
