Would it have been a 60 day trial version that you had to purchase to use beyond the trial period? If you purchased it you should have a key which could be used again if you restored your Laptop to Factory settings, but that would involve backing up all your personal data as all would be lost. I know of no site from which you can download Office 2007, Office Home & Student can be obtained for around £72, or you could bid on Ebay

Then there is aways Open Office for free...

You have to buy office 2007. You can't download it for free. If it came in your PC and you did something to it and don't have the license key the only way to get it back is to do a factory restore.

IF you bought it and have the license key the official isos are here

If you're trying to pirate it we don't do the while stealing thing here. Go read the forum rules

Yes it probably was that,a 60 day trial.I never opened set up and always just went straight on to Microsoft Word.Which means i'll have to buy it.

The error is that when Microsoft Word opens, none of the options are highlighted so they can-not be pressed on. I assume that means i have no more use of it.

This shows you how to convert trial into full version, but as you didn't get an error it probably won't apply.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/buy/convert-your-tria...
If you purchase from M'soft it will cost minimum £100.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/buy/
But you can buy Office Home & Student from here
http://www.sofway.co.uk/categories/microsoft-office
for £73 inc VAT (I've used them before, totally reliable) You get Word, Excel, Power Point and One Note.
Or, if you want the full Office Suite they have the 2003 version for a very reasonable £82. If you opt for that you would need to download File Format Converter from M'soft (Free download) so that this version could handle later editions. (I'm still happily using 2003) Hope this helps.
