I have a Toshiba lap top. I had to have my computer rebuilt

This answer was rated:

I have a Toshiba lap top. I had to have my computer rebuilt because of a virus. I had Excel
on my computer before it was rebuilt. Now I don't know how to activate it again. I do not have the cd I used to install Excel a few years ago. I hope if I give you all of the numbers that I have you can help me recover it.

Hello Beverly! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Are you other Office programs, such as Word or PowerPoint, still working? Do you remember the version of your office / excel, such as 2003, 2007, 2010, etc.?

Where did you purchase your office / excel software previously?

Can we do a remote session, so we can chat, and I will be able to help you directly?

Please let me know. Thank you

If you can't e-mail your answer to help me. I will have to buy another

Excel program. :(

I'm sorry, yes, I can email you, I'd just like to check if you can connect with me at the website I've provided previously, so I can help directly instead. But if your computer cannot connect, I can help you another way.

Since the version Office / Excel version 2003 is old (about ten years ago), Microsoft does not sell it or provide support for it any more; they only have the latest version 2013, but you would have to buy it.

However, there is an alternate office / excel program that is similar and it is free, so you do not need to buy another Excel program. Would you like me to provide that alternate program for you?

Edit: It looks like you are away; please reply back when you are available to continue. Don't worry, we guarantee our service. Thank you,
