Default reboot the 2nd hand ASUS eePC I just bought, but keep Microsoft OFFICE?

Online articles suggest i copy paste from the MS office DVD to a USB, but i don't have a DVD drive, let alone the MS office DVD...

Can I just copy paste to USB directly from the C: drive?

The reason for rebooting is the slow running speed of the device, so if there is anything else any users can suggest, to speed it up, please do.

Thank you!

I assume you mean "reloading".

Can you list the specs of your PC. There are all kinds of tricks/tips to speed up PC's but I'd like to see the specs first to see if it's worth it.


PC Cleanup Toolbox


As far as keeping Office - there's no way to do that. How did you get it installed in the first place?

Did it come with a recovery CD or DVD at all? Perhaps a preinstalled media disc?

Otherwise there is probably a recovery partition that will put it back to factory settings. Bear in mind that this will erase all data on the computer so back up all your files.

FYI with the toolbox don't run blackviper tools as that for the more advanced users and can go horribly wrong if you don't know what you are doing.
