Normally, No. But you haven't said what PC you have, where you got it from and what was packaged with it. Were these programmes on it when you bought the PC? If it was a package deal from one of the big suppliers you might have got CDs with it but they could have just been installed on the PC and you do not have the CDs. Did you get a "Recovery" CD? Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel are part of Microsoft Office. What are the CDs you have that came with the PC?
