If you mean that it isn't on the Start menu then it has probably been dragged onto the desktop of one of the users. A quick way to get it running is to go to Start, Run and type winword.exe. So long as the program is installed on the computer then it will run.

ExPressIT Lite is a CD labelling program and has nothing to do with Microsoft Office. You will need to reinstall Micosoft Office from your original CDs but it doesn't sound as if you have any. I would guess that you have done a repair installation of Windows which will have written a new Registry and may have wiped out your Office installation. If Office was pre-installed then you should use the Recovery discs that are normally supplied with a new computer which will put it back to how it was when originally supplied including any software. This will wipe out any data that you may have saved on the hard drive so if anything has survived, you will need to back it up before doing this. If you don't have Recovery discs then you need to contact the supplier of the PC.
