A few questions:

A. Is it Microsoft Office or Open Office (or possibly Microsoft Works even)?

B. Assuming it is Microsoft Office, what version is it?

C. The application is Word, winword is the executable file (i.e. winword.exe) - is this possibly a source of confusion

Can't say I was aware MS did trial versions.
Try download Open Office Open click here as an alternative

That the trial is not yet installed, but that there installed an installation programme. The trial last from when that is run. How else would it now when to start from?

Is there an Office icon anywhere on the desktop or start menu? If so that will probably start the process.

With apologies if I'm way off the mark!

None of the applications in Office/Student addition are cut down.

I also may be off the mark here, but I'm thinking you may be a student. If so, or if you have children at school or uni, are you aware of:

You have a choice of Office versions and it is worth considering a more expensive version that includes all/most of Office.

When people say "cut down version" they mean less packages (e.g. not including Access, One note etc), but everything you actually buy will be fully working as Pine Man says.

On the other hand Open Office dies evrything you'll likely want to do, including open all your MSOffice files, and costs absolutely nothing!

Probably the best version for compatibility is GO Open Office

It'll open your office 2007 files too, and output directly to .pdf format.
