    I am a novice so please forgive my bumbling here- I have worked with technical support staff at work to resolve issues but never on my own pc. I have windows xp and am having a problem accessing several programs/parts of programs associated with microsoft works. I cannot access clip art gallery or clip art and frames in picture it! I get a message that it can't find database and to reinstall works. I cannot get into calendar at all and get the following message:

    Works cannot find one or more files it needs to run calendar. The files may have been renamed, deleated or moved. Try reinstalling works and then starting the program again.

    I have tried reinstalling but it still doesn't work. I was also having problems with Roxio and could not burn cd's. It didn't work to reinstall at first either but then I was able to enter registration information and that fixed the problem.

    Thanks so much for any help you can give me.

    Hiya and welcome

    When it says it cand find the database, can you post the full message, like the Calender one. For the calender issue, have a look at this:


    That may/may not help for those other issues you're having, with the clipart.
