Thak you for taking the time to read my message. I am a new user, like 2 minutes new user.
I have this PC since 2008, it was bought new and I was never thrilled with its speed. But it was a friend who sold it to me so...here I am. I was planning to use it a lot this weekend to update some excel work I really need to do but here is the problem:
Outlook was acting up a bit. Then one day someone sent to me a very large file ( I was on dial up until the 5th of July 2013) and I could not download it. After I deleted the file through the web-mail I lost my internet connection. I was without internet for weeks. I managed to re-program my dial up connection and I received all my emails but I could not "send" emails. I went to outlook -help and I saw something about "repair" and clicked on it. A window came up and asked me for the disk. I do not have a disk. Someone gave me a disk of a "copy of Office 2003" and when I put the disk in, it just does not work.
So when I attempt to open Word, excel, outlook or power point the window comes back, something seems to download and then it asks me for the disk.
I went to control panel-"add or remove programs "and I do not see Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003. I see many updates starting with the compatibility pack for the 2007 office system. There are many many upadates the latest one being on July 05 2013. That is the date I was connected to a much faster internet server provider. Not exactly high speed but MUCH faster than dial up.
I don't know what to do. I do not have money to buy another computer now. I need to fix this somehow.
Whatever anyuone could do for me it is already greatly appreciated!
