My version, downloaded from an earlier installation CD, though fully intact, has been deemed end-of-life, and therefore slightly insecure. Microsoft's site offers the newest version for the low, low price of $250.00. I an't that insecure.
Thanks in advance.

Lou,
Slightly insecure is an understatement. If U are being offered Office 2007 for that price U are very lucky - its a bargain. U would not get that for GB pounds in the UK.

Maurice,
Perhaps I wasn't clear. That price is just for the Word portion of the Office Suite.

Thank you for your help, Maurice--I'll check, although I'd been hoping that I could find a reputable free site. If not, then it looks like I have to pay, or be doomed to forever fend off that damned animated paperclip "office assistant" everytime my Word opens. Remember "him?" Well, he's b-a-a-ack----

Why not use Open Office? It's free, and open source. And it does everything WinWord does. Don't waste your money!
