If the above doesn't suit, you could try Abiword from click here which is an excellent alternative.`

If you just want a word processor that will open and save Microsoft Word Documents try OpenOffice click here No point in having a trial version of Office when this one is free.

As Taff™ has said in the latest PCA magazine there is a very favourable write up on Open Office 3.0 which is compatable with Word

We downloaded the 60 day trial but when we apply the activation key it just comes back with the message that the 60 day trial has elapsed and expired??
Don't know what is going on with that then, We are trying to borrow a legitamate Word and put it on this computer,

Many thanks,

"We are trying to borrow a legitamate Word" - err ...borrow? I think you`ll find that you need to buy a licence otherwise it`s anything but legitimate. Save yourself some grief. Follow my link to OpenOffice. It`s entirely compatible with MS Word and FREE!

OpenOffice is really good and free.
