Hes still the registered user on startup (cant change this)
& when it goes to install office 2003 it asks for a 25 digit code from the cd cover (lost) or cert of authenticity (ditto)

docs.google.com sign up or if you already have a gmail or google account sign in and then just upload the file and you will be able to read/edit it for free

Depending on it's content / format could you open it with notepad (or another programme)

Just get Open Office

[url]www.openoffice.org[/url]

It's already been recommended but it's definitely the way to go. It's totally FREE and opens all word documents etc.

All you have to do is download the Word viewer (assuming it is a Word document)

There is also an Excel viewer if it is a spreadhsheet.

Open Office is much better than Google Docs. I guess it's quicker though seeing as it's online.

I'm surprised hotukdeals are letting people talk about illegal versions though. You don't want that kind of thing going on here.
