Question

Need a safe free download to put an excel reader on my PC

I need to be able to read Excel files sent to me. My old reader was lost when I bought a new computer and I don't want to download one with a lot of junk attached. Is there a nice clean free download available and where would I find it?

The Office readers offered by Microsoft is no longer available, alas.

Tip for the future: if you download and install a program, save the installer in your backup. Then you can reinstall it later, even if you can't download it again.
