It depends on what you are replacing.
If you are upgrading from Vista, then all your software should work.

If you are upgrading from XP you will have to reinstall everything.

Another option is to switch to Open Office for you office apps. - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET

It's free and works well for everything I have tried to do with it.


Another option is use a program like SIW SIW | Download free version (page has pro and free version on it) should show your license Key, then if a friend has a copy of what you want on a disc use it to install office your key that you found using SIW
