Software - can I use it on two computers

I recentley got Microsoft Works with a new PC, and was wondering whether or not I could install it on another computer in the house. Is this ok or do I have to buy another copy.

It is illegal to install the same copy of a software on two computers if the licence it came with was for one. In your case, Microsoft Works only has a licence to be installed on 1 computer, any more and you will be violating the copyright design and patents act.

You could either buy another copy of Works or you could buy another licence for your copy of Works which will enable you to install it on two computers.
