Microsoft Word

This is my 1st computer, and I am not computer literate!

I have an Acer desktop which only has word installed, with no spell checker.

I have looked at Microsoft and to be honest, I do not want to go to the expense of installing Microsft Word, as I do not have the need for it.

Is there a free programme I can install like Microsoft Word complete with a spell checker?

OK, I have gone wrong somewhere

I clicked on the link

Clicked on start download

Clicked on Save to dektop

Download completed.

Installation wizard completed download.

I now have 2 icons on my desktop


When I click on I get a message stating installation files must be opened and copied to your hard drive.

I followed the instructions, and completed the installation.

2nd Icon)
Installation files, double clicked and there are 11 files

I went back to, and it states I have to complete the installation, which I have already done!

Not sure where or what I have done wrong

Any advice please?

These are the installation instructions click here - to be honest it's so long since I installed it, I can't remember the sequence of events myself.

Look through the link and see if it helps.

I am now using the product.

Thanks for your help & advice
