The simplest way to resolve the question of where they came from is to just ask your dad.

I've got office 10 disks that look just like that
I got them through a school ID because my wife teaches. Mine came from here

My dad DID take some kind of Java class a few years ago, maybe he got them from that???


(To Joe C) Why/how do you have a Microsoft Office '07 disk from '10?

That was when I got that disk. I upgraded to 10 shortly after that. There was some kind of free upgrade deal from M$, and I think I did that because 7 was cheaper then, or 10 wasn't out yet. My memory has failed.. My Mrs. is now running office 13 at home through her school (work at home version) but I'm with 10 for the time being

I might be digressing a little, but could I possibly upgrade my MS Office '10 to MS Office '13?? Or is it even worth it?

That expired a very long time ago in pc terms.
You'll need your product keys before you can use those disks, without the keys those disks are kinda useless. The product keys I got are attached to those black disk jackets, didn't see that on yours unless they're on the back side
