System Restore

  Ferrari-Fan 12:59 28 Dec 2010

My new laptop with Widows 7 had Microsoft office trial preinstalled. I deleted it but would now like to give it a try.

Does System Restore reinstall deleted programs if I go back to the relevent restore point?

No, but it may be on the Restore CD if you got one. I think its gone for good now

Free 60 day trial from Microsoft but be aware that when it ends your docs may not be available

Can you explain as I have never had an issue

Some have reported not being able to access docs when trial ended and tried to revert to older office

May not be a problem with current trial or I guess if you buy product after trial

I assume that they are meaning that they saved them in docx format and then could not open them in older versions of Word

The thing that I wanted to have a look at was the Office 2010 starter program as I think this would satusfy my basic requirements. Would I be correct in assuming that this would not be included if I downloaded the trial?

If not can this be obtained on its own from microsoft or where would be the best place to get it from?

Are you sure your computer had Office Starter and not the full 60 day trial version.

Starter is only available as a pre-install on new computers.

Yes Office 2010 starter was a preinstall on the new laptop
