Well you have to reinstall your applications...
That is how it goes when you do a "clean" install.

When you perform a clean installation...that means as the title suggests: you start clean, your format everything, you start anew, etc..

All of the previous data was erased for the new OS, all of your apps will have to be reinstalled

Hey there, help1991.

As said above, because you've opted to do the Clean Installation, you've lost all applications - including your Microsoft Office Suite.

The only thing that you can do now is to locate your installation disks and reinstall everything. Yes, the Office programs are from Microsoft, but you still need to install them along with everything else. Good luck.

The programs you refer to are not part of Windows and never have been. They are part of Microsoft Office, which is a separately purchased package (and generally not cheap, unless you go for a student version). You will need to purchase a copy at a retail store or online.

You may also opt to install the free OpenOffice suite of programs which are compatible with Microsoft Office, but doesn't have all the bells and whistles. This can be obtained at OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite.
