Hi TechRepublic folks out in cyberspace. A short message to all of you for my appreciation of your advice and web-links to some interesting and helpful websites. I notice the majority of your post are from IT management...maybe I'll get to that position one day, though I doubt it. Like working with my art designs too much and don't intend to stop. Bye

The system maker is always a good starting point here.

Not sure where you'll stand a chance in **** of getting a replacement Install Disc for Word as this is not provided by the System Maker but M$.

What it means, juaniotoo, is that circumstances of the rip-off need to be changed before you replace the disks, only to lose them again on account of the circumstances that made the original (theft) possible.

If that means locking your door, then lock your door. If that means reevaluating your neighbors, associates, and acquaintances, then, that too.

Means reevaluating your own mindset.

I now expect two thumbs.

Again, what I asked for was how to obtain copies of Windows XP recovery disks, not advice on security measures I need to take. Don't you think I'm not aware of that? Fact is, I live in a complex where the maintenance people have walk-in keys and therefore held suspect. Of course, if I moved I would be lest of a target. If I catch any maintenance people in my place I won't be able to guarantee their safety. I was in special ops in Vietnam and I have certain skills these rip-off artist wouldn't want to deal with.

Does your reprimand fall flat, but, your explanation of antecedent conditions raises yet more questions about your mindset and circumstance.

Tunnel vision does that.

This is the last response you'll get from me. Frankly, I think you're trying to start something and I've got better things to do that read you BS. Enough said.

After the backhand you delivered in your private peer-mail to me.

Glad, now, that I responded here -- in public -- rather than to hand over my address to you by answering privately.

You get to display your same instability here, in public. And, display it you do.

I wasn't going to answer your obviously derisive responses...however, what you seem to be is a very young disrespectful clown. I'm fairly certain I'm old enough to be your granddads' age, if you have one. I'm also a disabled Vietnam veteran and I've seen your type many times over. We had some clowns in "Nam" and they didn't survive very long, and for good reason. Take stock in your words and show some respect to your elders, provided you were taught how to show respect, then again maybe you truly don't know how, and that is indeed sad. I ask a simple question and you come off with all this BS, you remind me of the cowardly draft dodgers of the late 60s.

You could probably purchase copies from the maker of the computer(s).

Have you looked into Open Office, a free version of Microsoft Office? It is available by download for Linux and XP.
