Restored PC with generic Vista Install- issues with Windows Live OneCare to restore with Backup CD's, Lost Microsft Excel/Word RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've recently had a complete reinstall of Windows Vista 32 bit, to fix a 'crashed' PC.  I believe I could categorize my questions mostly to, I want Microsoft Excel and Word back.

    1.  How can I restore/re-install Microsoft Excel/Word?  I didn't get install CD's with PC.  Can this be done WITHOUT using my Windows Live Care backup CDs?

    2.  I've 9 backup CD's created with Windows One-Care some time back, but I can't even install that because I've problems installing Live One-Care.  I get some useless Error ID: 0020-80070643, saying one or more components of OneCare didn't install successfully.   Trying to track that down put me into the long dismall abyss of the internet of which I ended up here!

    I realize my question may be rather vague.   Any assistance is appreciated.
