It's easy to drag something from the Start menu and inadvertently drop it somewhere. But that doesn't remove the programs. Click Start and in the search box type WINWORD or EXCEL and you should find Word and Excel respectively.
I don't know how, but MSWord and MSExcel have left my computer! I have files to prove these programs were here, but no programs! How could programs just vanish? I've searched for the application in Office but to no avail. I've looked in windows.old, nada. Searched the whole computer and the programs....zero.
I'm stumped and ticked.
