    I have a new computer with Windows XP as the operating system. I am unhappy with its Microsoft works. I really loved the Microsoft Suite which came with my old computer (Windows ME) and still have all the MIcrosoft disks for the Suite program.
    Would unistalling the present Works program and installing the Suite program harm my computer?

    Not at all.
    It is even possible to have both on the same system, but it does get a little confused at times when starting Word.
    I have both on this system, and at times it is nice to try out Works for some of the tools they have there.
    But generally I prefer the Office Suite.
    The problem I get, sometimes, deals with having to point to my installation CD when I need to startup the "other" Word when I had last been using the alternate.

    A small issue, so I live with it for now. But when I tire of it, I will just remove Works.
