Microsoft allows you to download MS Office (Microsoft Office) programs from its website to your computer after you buy them. You can burn the program data onto a blank CD-R disc, making a backup copy for yourself. This allows you to reinstall the program using your burnt CD copy if files become corrupted or you switch computers.
