    Use Explorer and search for winword.exe.
    When found, rightclick it, select Send to, and select Desktop (make shortcut).

    which word?

    Which v. Word did you have? Was it preinstalled, or do you have the program disk? If it was instaled as part of an "office" suite, insert the Office disk, and click on the "repair previous installation" option. If it is a standalone, reinstall. If it was preinstalled, you might try MS support. If all else fails, there is a free download called PC Inspector File Recovery that I have had some success with. I found it at Find PC World. I'm no expert at this, but I've had my own troubles with Office 2003. Might help?

    Not the most optimum solution, but you can always try www.openoffice.org It is in many ways just as good as Word, but it's free. Give it a look, especially if you need this paper done in a crunch.
