You can also do a clean installation by following the procedure as listed below:To perform a clean installation of Windows XP, follow these steps:Back up all important information before you perform a clean installation of Windows XP. Save the backup to an external location, such as a CD or external hard disk.Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer. Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows XP.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows XP Setup.
Ok, well you do not need to replace it as such, one usually simply installs Microsoft Office, and this will install Word, & others too, Or, just MS Word, and Associate, the Program with the Document files, so that documents will automatically open suitable documents.
If you want to do so...you can follow these procedure:
If you don't have the CD/DVD, Buy your genuine MS Windows XP Professional SP3 and Windows Office 2007 (I can't suggest you the price, it may be vary).
Write down all Computer Device type (you will need it when installing device driver). To find it, right click on your "my computer" icon on your desktop and click "manage". Locate "Device Manager" and write down all device that listed here. But do not to worry about it, most of well known device are included in Windows Driver out of the box. For some computer, the driver could be found on the CD that shipped with the computer when you've purchased it.
Copy all of your data (i.e in "My Documents") into your external Hard Disk or other backup device such as DVD or CD.
Make sure your computer's boot priority set to "boot from cd" as first priority. You can set it in BIOS option.
boot your computer, and follow instruction from Windows CD (it will be easy thought, it almost clear for every instruction).
After the installation finished, you might be needed to install device driver.
Install Office 2007 and follow the instruction (believe me, it's easy!)
Copy back all of your data from your external harddisk to your new "My Document"
It's all done
But, you might be found some problem during the installation, and it may be vary...just ask me again with your new problem then...I will try to help :)

hi, XP pro. installed by your asso. in a pyrated version and is not genuine copy. Such serial numbers are blocked by the MS for any updates or software from microsoft. However you can use it normally with all the programs except the special updates from microsoft.
It used to happen like this during the new installation.
goto BIOS setup and check that the HDD is correctely detected. check the size it reported. If its correct, give one more try. else the HDD firmware is corrupted and can be repaired.
