Hi Hope someone can help
Last year I purchased Microsoft Office Student 2007 and Quicken, I am now wanting to get a laptop with win7 . Will these progams install on a new puter and activate, off my installation discs, or do I have to get new software.

What are Toshiba laptops like?

You will be fine as long as you remove then from your existing computer.
Although the Office Student version may be licensed to run on up to 3 computers. It should say on the packaging if it is.

Toshiba's are good along with Asus.

Quickbooks does not work well/at all with Windows 7.
We have been informed by a lot of our Partners who also work with Quickbooks that they are getting very frustrated trying to make it work

That's what XP Mode is for :thumbs:
I am using Quickbooks 2006/2007 in it and works great.
A newer version of Quickbooks would probably work fine in Windows 7.

Second hand information YMMV of course.

Apparently its the newer one that is designed for Vista that has the problems, but as I said 2nd hand.
