Personally I think were getting off track here. If the OP has his Office disk there's no need to install any 3rd party apps...... just install Office and be done

It tells me to choose a program, can somebody tell me in Kindergarten language how to get around this problem. I have a reasonable grasp of computers for a 71 year old but am far away from being an expert.
Plain and simple - In order to view your Microsoft Office documents (Microsoft Word and Excel) you'll need to install Microsoft Office on Windows 7

Just had a thought. As you had MS Office on another machine have you got the installation disc. If so why not just install it on your new PC?
Of course we won't know that answer until he posts back.
