I am currently running OSX Leopard 10.5.8 with the windows suite. I would like to upgrade my OS to Snow Leopard and then to Mountain Lion, but cannot lose office. What do I have to do in order to keep office and upgrade the OS?

Clarification Request
what do you mean by the "Windows Suite"
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / October 20, 2012 8:35 AM PDT

Do you mean "Office 2008 for Mac"
Do you mean you run Windows in Parallels or VMFusion and have the Windows Office Suite in there?

Do you have the installation CD for a re-install, if needed?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
