Well I reformatted my Hard Drive and for some reason, Microsoft Works and a lot of other softwares disappeared.

I didn't have any CD's or Product Keys given so I don't know how to get it back :thumbsup:

Does anyone know what to do? Thanks

When you reformat, you wipe the drive clean, nothing is saved
You can try Open Office, which is free, for your Office application needs:

To replace other software you lost, have a look at our Freeware Replacements forum:

^Thanks.

By the way, is it possible to copy the Microsoft Works from a different computer to mine? Or do you need a product key as well?

Only if you have the product key, otherwise it's a violation

^Oh. Never mind then. I bought my computer about 4 years ago and I have no idea where I've put all those stuff. I don't even think I got a CD or Product Key since it was already installed in the computer.

Thanks anyways
