Recovering Microsoft Office after reinstalling windows RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm a computer novice, but Iæve just managed to reinstall Windows XP on my dinasaur of a computer.  But I forgot or wasn't aware that Microsoft Office 2003 needed to be backed up.  I bought the computer new some 10 years ago and it came with Office installed.  I don't remember ever seeing a CD or getting a product key or anything.  Now I've got a much faster computer but no office.  It burns me to have to pay for this since I legitimately bought and payed for the installed package 10 years ago.  Can I recover or reinstall Office 2003 without having to buy it?
