I just bought Works 6.0 to replace the corrupted 6.0 I had on my computer. I got it cheap, $25, so I should be satisfied. But the ad I responded to descirbed it as "Full". As is (unfortunately) the case so often, there is no explanation of what "Full" means, but since some of the ads use the term "OEM" I assumed that "Full" meant it was not "OEM". I have had the impression that with Full I would get some kind of certificate and code that would entitle me to MS support not available for OELM. Anyhow, my question is: did my seller do me right by sending me OEM softeware? Thanks, grandpaw7

OEM means it was made for a particular computer manufacturer and was most likely pre-installed. OEM can be Full but Full is not necessarily OEM. The only problem (and I hope you don't run into it)would be that you were sold let's say a Dell OEM, or some other brand, and you are not installing on that brand machine. You may not be able to install. Other than that little glitch I don't think you should be concerned over OEM vs. Full.
