If you have the restore disk run it and it will format your computer then install fresh version of XP then install Office XP.
You can download XP if you don't have the disk.
Is it legal to download XP (YES) as it does not have any keys to hack it, there should be product code on your PC.

If your dell has the complete system restore option (it should if the system is original), the easiest thing to proceed is selecting the restore option from start menu/dell/.. .
If you do not have dell tools it means that the system had been already reinstalled after purchase. In this case you will need to use a generic Windows setup disk.
To install windows from the disk you will need a valid license, check the sticker at the back of your pc and install same windows version (eg. Windows xp home, windows xp professional etc.).
After installing windows from cd you will need to download and install drivers. You can download drivers from dell website.
Best solution is using Dell tools, this will reinstall everything at once.

Does a samsung stratospher need a sims card to ativate?


It depends on the carrier. After checking the specs though the phone comes back as a 4G LTE device so you will need a SIM card for ATT, Sprint, and Verizon. If you are on something like Straight Talk or MetroPCS, then they do not use SIMs

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    How do I cancel netflix???


    Open Safari, go to netflix.com, sign into your account. On the drop down menu in the upper right, click on "My account". Click on cancel whichever service you no longer want to have.

    Fairly certain you cannot cancel your service from any of the mobile Netflix apps.
