    How to uninstal a Office software from dead computer

    I have been using a new Windows 8.1 computer (Dell).
    Suddenly, the computer was dead yesterday.
    Dell is going to send me a replacement computer.

    My question is how to handle re-installing software which were installed on the dead computer.
    Here is an example. Microsoft office 2013 was installed on the dead computer.
    Since the computer is dead, I am not able to uninstall the software.

    When I get the new computer, I might be not able to install the same Office 2013 on it because it was already installed on the dead computer. Furthermore, the software was not uninstalled.

    Please advise me how to install the software onto new computer.

    Just install it and activate it on the new computer. If you run into any trouble, give them a call.

    Unmount the hardrive and put it on another laptop, and then just flush alll the folder. But you won't be able to uninstall it.
