Answer by eljedo
here are a few tips.
1. you can find which ones are installed by either clicking the “start” menu, and going to “all programs” if using Windows XP, and look for anything that says Microsoft Office, Office, Corel, OpenOffice. Just have a browse through the start menu programs.
2. if you open “Control Panel” -> “Add/Remove Programs”, it will generate a list of all installed programs.
3. you can open “My Computer” -> “C” -> “Program Files” -> and look for any folders Office or Microsoft Office related.
If you need to download an office suite, you can find an excellent free office suite called OpenOffice, that is fully compatible with Microsoft Office and all other major office programs. look for the link in the sources,
