the link brings up THE REQUESTED WEB PAGE IS NOT AVAILABLE.
To be honest, the logic of this escapes me. The PC has worked perfectly for 4 months since purchase new, and this suddenly happens without any action on my part. I have never used Word 2002 (which I know is part of MS Works), so why would it suddenly throw up this message? I could understand it if it had always done this, of if I had attempted to use Word, but neither is the case. So what could have happened to change things?
Got so fed up with this message that I put Disc 1 of MS works (the one with Word 2002) into the CD ROM drive and clicked OK. I then removed the disc and restarted the PC and the message did not reappear. Problem (if not the mystery) solved, I thought.
OK, but then, I had an Email with an attachment to download. Instead of downloading to Wordpad as usual, it now downloaded the MS Word!!
how can I have just installed Word, when I installed MS Works (all five discs) the day I received the PC? In any event, by inserting the disc and clicking OK, the message disappeared within seconds - certainly not enough time for any installation. Word has been on the PC for months and didn't raise its ugly head until a few days ago.
Similarly, any download of an attachment always displayed on Wordpad until now.
Ok, things may have resolved themselves (I hope so, anyway) but I would like to know what happened. I like to understand the reason for things.
