However I went to My Documents and noticed that all Microsoft Office files had the icon with the white paper with the window box inside of it and one pink, blue, and green dots in the window. Any file that I clicked on brought up the "Open With" screen and since no MS Office programs were there I used "Used the Internet to find the best program". Which prompted me to download and re-buy that MS program.
I have the MS Office programs on my startup menu and desktop, but when I click on those it says "This works only for currently installed programs." Now I was on the phone with the IT dept and we did another system restore but I only had one date option which was the date and time after the first system restore. So now my questions are is I will obviously have to re-install MS Office 2007 but if I do then will I be able to open all files that are already on my comp as though nothing happened?? Does it matter that each report was created in 2003?? Better yet is there anyway to install or get MS Office without the company shelling out hundreds? Thanks.
