I have been having problems with MS Works for a while - in that once, I used the TaskLauncher or went to Word Processor and "closed" either, I could not get them to open again. After many tries of uninstalling, reinstalling, adding dll's, etc. etc., I stumbled on what was happening. My problem, I don't know how to fix it. It seems that once I have been in to Works and leave it by closing, the application is still running, but the shortcuts will not allow me to enter again. Because of a program I have, called WinPatrol, I can go to the "active tasks" tab and find msworks.exe there and "kill" it. Then I can open the TaskLauncher or Word Processor. Once, the application has been activated, though, if I leave, I have to "kill" the task again before I can enter it again. Does anyone have any suggestions what might be going on? I assume I NEED msworks.exe - but how do I make it behave properly. Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
