Microsoft (entourage, etc) not on the dock after the hard drive was replaced today - can't find my microsoft dvd.  Is there a free microsoft download I can access?  I think I had the Microwsoft 8, not sure.

    Have you looked at your Applications folder via Finder? If Microsoft Office is there, drag it or the applications to your dock. I'm not aware of a free Microsoft download from Office 2008 (if that's what you had)

    Microsoft only has Office 2011 available for download as a trial app (you can use your product key to activate it). But you can get the 2008 trial here. How much you trust getting that trial software from a non MS site is up to you. Like the 2011 trial software, you can activate it to the full version with your product key. But without your DVD, that will be a problem since your product key is in the box with the disk.
