Is there anyway to format my computer without losing my software?

by on August 29, 2011

Q: Hi! I would like to reformat my 4 year old laptop, but I am worried about losing Microsoft Office. I downloaded the suite during grad school from my university. It was available as part of my technology fee. I can no longer do that, and do not have an original disc or registration code. Is there a way reformat my drive and keep this software? Thanks!

    Your best option would be to retrieve your registration code from your computer: http://bit.ly/pzXrN9

    After that you’ll need to either borrow installation media from a friend or download the installer for your version of Office if it is available.

    If you’re looking for a 2007 edition of Office, one of these download links might work for you: http://bit.ly/q9Ueki
