ok, i have xp and i have the office package with all the good stuff like word,excel, powerpoint, etc... Well they all open but excel. i got excel to open once about 20 mins ago but ive also tried about 15 times in the past hour to open it with no luck. What happens is when i click on excel it says "preparing to install etc... " stuff like that then when it gets ready to try to install it says im missing a file and exits. any ideas?

I would take it back and tell them to install it again.

Honestly they should not supply software and not the discs, that really annoys me.

Easiest thing in the world for them to do when installing it is just choose the COMPLETE (not typical) install option and unchecking the delete installation files when the installation is complete, and all your worries would be gone. Smart tech's do this, stupid one's (like the Geek Squad for example, gosh they are retarded) don't.
