:tazz: don't look now but, the short bus is here....


hi, i have straight up deleted both microsoft office and microsoft word and excel.

no, i could not be any more moronic, thank you for asking. a brief synopsis on how and why (HA!) i needed (i thought) to get rid of some unused programs and free up some space.... i got the old add and remove programs window up in front of me and i straight up removed all three programs going; oh, i dont use these very much and look at how big they are... sheesh... cluttering up my space like that man....

yes, really.

i googled for similar tards without finding any who had made quite so severe an error. of course, being bright enough to have tossed my cookies this way... its entirely likely that i googled my bottom off in true form...... idiotic.

and yes, i searched geeks to go before i posted. so if i am rehashing a subject which has been addressed i will accept a curt redirect to the appropriate thread.
no hitting.

oh, almost forgot, i did immediatley try to use system restore to undo my damage...... it no go. it said it worked but the programs i removed were not replaced.

am i beyond hope?

murray, thanks for responding to my post.

yes, the office cd.... i do not have such an animal. at least if i do it is not clearly labeled as such.

the deal: toshiba pc, preloaded xp home, ive got the certificate of authenticity and have used the validation tool from ms before to get updates and whatnots.

however, there is a problem which goes something like this (which i am typing directly from the little setup manual thingy here) : 'Because Windows XP was included with the purchase of your new computer, your computer manufacturer provides support for this product.' then follows instructions for reaching the manufacturer.
upon following those instructions , i find my issue addressed quite directly. it goes something like this (which i am relating from memory here) : we do not provide support for software which has been erased or modified by the user.

so...... i am aware of the nasal whining quality of my wording here....please forgive me. i'll try to 'man up'.

you think i should just barge on in there to the manufacturer support people and tell it like it is? 'yes, im a big dumb idiot! ugga bugga! me break puter ting.... you fix! ugga bugga!!' or do you think i should stay put until someone finds time to suggest an alternative? i could go the 'throwing myself on your mercy' route but im really already in it up to my ears here ....

i do have two cds that came with the puter.
one marked 'Recover XP'
it is very mysteriously marked with mainly numbers and consenents in seemingly garbled form. i have tried putting it in the cd drive but could not discern anything remotely intelligible to my expert eyes har har.

the other is pc cillin application update driver cd

what a mess, huh? sorry if i got boogers on your collar... *sniff*

thank you for your polite attention despite your busy schedule.

sincerely,
-anj119

Did Office come pre-installed?? If so, then whomever you purchased your system from was obligated to provide you with the cd's as well..

you, Murray, are really very good to advise me on this.

ummmm... the computer is a (now i might not get all the words in all the right order) oh crap.....

geez, i dont really know how to get these words in the right spots so im just throwin' em all out ok? its a 0801 part no. X08-42684 toshiba pc something or nother lite on combo xp home northgate innovations, inc.

;) hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha not funny. :help:

i don really obviously know. my dh brought it home in a huge box sometime last year. the box is still inna basement i will go look see what is says but i remember unpacking it and you know it came with everything in its own box all packed inside the big box. it came with everything.

i will dash off a email to dh (serving in Iraq) tonight but i really dont think he is gonna know.

i can take a picture of the box. or the computer. or scan the user manual. or the cds it came with.

or i can take a flying leap into the nearest body of water, if you'd like. ;)

thanks Murray. fo'sho.
