Software for programs purchased from and installed by Dell
Last month, I purchased a new Dell Inspiron 620. I also purchased Microsoft Office (home and office version) as well as Roxio 2011. These programs came installed in the machine. I would like to get a copy of the installation software for these programs just in case I have to reinstall them. How do I get this software?
Re: Software for programs purchased from and installed by Dell
You may download Roxio and some other software up to three times using My Dell Downloads. I would recommend you to download it onto an external hard drive for backup purposes.
For Microsoft Office 2010 and Windows 7 you may download it here (ensure that you have the product keys for both). The Windows 7 Product Key is found on the sticker at the base of your system, I would advise you to type it in a notepad file in case you need it in the future and the sticker gets worn. Again save to an external hard drive.
If you need to reinstall or want to perform a clean install follow my guide here.
