Either install Excel onto the Vista laptop OR install OpenOffice onto the laptop and use that to view and edit excel spreadsheets.
Right-click on Excel spreadsheet in Windows Explorer and select Open With - Choose Program - Browse to the location of Excel or Openoffice program and make sure box is ticked for "Always open this program to open these files"
