Hi, i have installed xp on a brand new h.d but how do i get Word etc on the pc? I notice that next to the Xp licence on the pc there is a 'Microsoft Works' licence, is this it please?

Won't be much good unless you have a copy of a "works suite"

if you do not the prog in the link will help (free)

Not possible I'm afraid. Open Office a good alternative. The licence you see is already in use so do not try to use it even though you might get a disc !
I can only help so much.
Glad you're sorted.

Hi, iv tried downloading open office but it doesn't run? Has anyone got any other links for it please?

The link placed on your desktop is probably not the one to run the program. Go to Start/All Programs and find the OpenOffice.org entry - select the program you want and click to open.

You can make your own desktop shortcuts as required.
