    I'll risk angering the Microsoft gods by telling you that I am writing this post using LibreOffice Writer under Ubuntu 14.04.

    The free downloadable "Office Starter 2010" might be perfect for you on your 'old' machine, but I have been led to understand that it is not compatible with Windows 8. Office 2010 itself is entirely...

    Worth a try?

    I suggest you image the present state of the computer, which may or may not be a mess and about which little is really known, but for which the registry is the chief worry.

    The crucial question is: did the hard drive survive? You can put that in an enclosure and recover all of their data, and program installations for that matter. On the other hand, if they were...

    Google 'Boolean' and that might give you what you 'vaguely remember'. 'Boolean search' is probably the term you have in mind, and that dates from pre-Google days. Boolean algebra dates from...

    I like the (free) Folder Size from MindGems (I think there is another program with the same name).
