The pre-installed version of Microsoft Works on my "Recently" purchased PC (Gateway, Windows 7, 64-bit) is malfunctioning. I am being prompted to re-install Works. Because it was pre-installed, and not a "trial", I am seeking information about being able to re-download for free. Is there a free version, or should I possibly be able to correct the problem using System Restore?

Thank You, Richard, for Your response! I will have to do some research about OpenOffice. But, may I ask You about it also (I am trusting You have used and/or are familiar with it)? Does it have some of the advantages of Microsoft Works? I use Works for addressing envelopes, creating business cards, Calendar, and some of the other spreadsheet templates (I think that is what the name is for things like "Vehicle Maintenance Log" & similar "fill-in-the-blank" type logs available in Works)?

Since this came with your Gateway machine, Gateway should be able to get you a copy.
There are no Free versions out there.

I believe it does all that with some research like any other new prog. Also, Works is not Word-compatible whereas OpenOffice is compatible with Word, Excel & Powerpoint etc.
