Word Processor in Windows 7

Postby sox 06 » Fri Feb 26, 2010 9:59 pm

I just upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 (was running Vista). It didn't come with Microsoft Works Word Processor and my question is, can I somehow go through HP and get it as my laptop, which I bought last June, came with MWWP. Or do I need to buy it or just go with Open Office?

I think you need to buy it. Or you could download the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta http://www.microsoft.com/office/2010/en/default.aspx

Mine works fine so far.

My guess would be you have to buy it. The only time you get Word free is on a new system. Just go with Open Office. It works just fine, plus it can now open docx files, which is a HUGE plus!

The only reason why I'm hesitant to go with Open Office is its usually a system hog (at least in my past experiences). But the last time I ran OO was on a four year old Dell and my laptop trumps that computer when it comes to specs. Hopefully it will run smoothly ;-D

However, don't new computers usually come with discs that have Windows and the programs that are on the computer in case you need to reinstall them? My laptop didn't come with discs as most new computers have the files loaded on the computer, but isn't it possible to contact, say HP, and get discs if you prefer to have discs? I know our Dell desktop came with a Microsoft Works disc and Word was on it. I used the disc to reinstall Word on the desktop when I reinstalled XP about a month ago. Just curious.
