    First, are you running Word or Works when you get this message. I mean, do you get into Works at all or you get into Works, choose the Word processor and that's when you get the error...

    If you like, you can try the "global" fix. Go to www.piersontech.com/07-CleanHardDrive.htm
    and follow the instructions to clean up your hard drive. And then, of course, if that doesn't work, come on back in here and let us know what version of works you're using. If you can't figure out how to tell, find the file called msworks.exe on your hard drive, right-click the file name and hit Properties. The version is under there.
