    I just noticed, when trying to do my daughters homework, that I no longer have the Office Folder or Short Cut. It must have disappeared as a result of my work done on this machine after it was impacted by Malware VX2. That is the only thing I can think of.
    I cant locate the Office discs so I cant reload. If I find a WORD document, I can open it and use WORD.

    HOW CAN I RESTORE THE TOOL BAR in Windows XP without the Office disc?

    Any ideas?

    If you can open a word file with Word, then the programs filesare still there . . just the shortcuts have been deleted. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the Word ( Usually C:\program files\office\winword.exe ) right click on it and drag to the desktop , , when you release the right click, select" create shortcut" . . you can do the same for Excel and PowerPoint.
