Question about Computers & Internet
Do you have Microsoft Office installed on your new computer?
If you don't have some version of MS Office on your new computer, then you won't be able to open the old files.
If you bought your old version of Office and still have the install disks, then you may be able to install it on your new computer. Even if you only have the PRODUCT KEY code, which is the long string of digits on a sticker that came with your MS Office software, you can probably still get the software installed and activated on your new PC using that key code.
There are websites such as WWW.CNET.COM where you can download the software online, but you would still need a valid product key in order to activate it.
Worst case scenario, you can always download the generic OPEN OFFICE software package which is free and will allow you to open MS Office documents. It is similar to the MS Office suite, but not quite as refined. Here is a link to their website:
And also a link to the Open Office download page at WWW.CNET.COM where you can also read about the software along with other user's reviews:
Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.
I hope that was helpful to you, thank you and good luck.

If your Sony VAIO computer has been infected with a virus, its system files may be deleted or corrupted, which will cause system instability.
Depending on the type of virus or the specific files lost, you may not be able to manually fix the problem.
You can restore all of the system files back to their original condition and recover the operating system to its factory settings by using a hidden recovery partition on the VAIO
Click start control panel scroll to folder options view place a tick in show hidden files folders and drives.
This may vary depending on your operating system.
Close any programs that are currently open.
Transfer any files you want to keep from the Sony VAIO's hard drive to another source, such as a USB memory stick.
Disconnect any peripheral devices that are hooked up to the VAIO, such as a printer or network cable.
Open the "Start" menu and choose "Help and Support."
Click "Back Up & Recovery" and then navigate to "VAIO Recovery Center." Select "Launch VAIO Recovery Center."
Click "Restore Complete system" underneath the "Choose a Program" heading.
Click "OK" and follow the prompts to restore your Sony VAIO's system files back to their original condition.
hope this helps
