Dear Computer Lady,
Hi, I did a system restore and now am unable to open xls files and others that are sent to me by email. I am running windows 7 prof 64 bit.
Thank you, Roni
It sounds like you used to have Microsoft Office installed on your computer, and now after recovering your computer to its original configuration, you no longer have Office installed.
You have two choices, you can re-install Office from the disks that you used to install it the first time, or if you no longer have the disks, you could always go to www.openoffice.org and download & install the free, open source program, Open Office.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
