  1. MS installed a partial version of Words & Excel because when talking to me about bldg my dell I told them that this was all I ever used on the MS Works I had on a previous HP I used at 1 time, so I still have this disk. When I tried to setup the partial words & excel it would load 1-3, but 4 would Not load. I thought maybe I could install my older MS software and everything would be ok. I just want to make sure. Thanks
  2. Loading MS Works should not present a problem, I have it on my computer and it works just fine.

    are you running on win7 ? This disc I have is 5 years old & it came with I think windows XP. That is why I am nervous because it has had No Updates for years.
