Hi I have recently had a new motherboard fitted in my PC, unfortunatly my word and excel have dissapeared from my programmes, problem is i did not recieve any instillation discs when i bought the pc, it was already fully installed. i bought the PC
from Comet so it's not anything illegal. How can i get the genuine software back on my PC?
Preinstalling software and not providing a Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) or other Proof Of License is a form of piracy known as Hard Disk Loading.
As you were not provided with any means to prove that you had a genuine license and as you were not provided with any means to reinstall the software, it is very likely that your previous installation of Word and Excel were pirated copies.
