You best solution would be to download openoffice,org which is completely free and will work with excel, word powerpoint, and other MS format files. Just type into google.
Have you cosidered switching to Linux? Theres plenty choices out there some as easy as Windows to use.
if you bought the PC new from a shop/retailer with Windows already installed, then they have to provide you with a licence key, as they have not provided you with a legal copy of Windows. There should be a licence sticker which corresponds to the version of Windows you are using stuck on the case.

If you bought the PC second hand, then I guess you will have to purchase a licence.

As for excel, if you don't have the original installation media, to reinstall it, then consider Open Office as already suggested from
