  • The computer will have come from the manufacturer with a recovery disk, or a set of recovery disks. Run a recovery to restore it to the state as shipped from the factory; this will include whatever software you bought it with. If you bought it used and you didn't get any disks, you will have to buy a copy of Office if you want it, or see if the person you bought the computer from has the recovery disks (probably not, by now). The manufacturer of the computer can often sell you a fresh set of recovery disks, too.
