    Microsoft Office 2003


    Very recently Microsoft seems to have denied access to Office 2003 which is installed on my Windows 10 computer. I have the current Office also on my computer but prefer to use the old version. How can I access it?

    :)

  3. Error 404 Win User
    Office 2003 replacement, free, not OO.

    I need a replacement for Office 2003, but preferable not OpenOffice.
    It needs to be free, internet-independant, and has to run on slow hardware. (An old PIII Celeron laptop @ 600 MHz with 192 MB of RAM, to be precise)

    Any suggestions?
