MS Works 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using MS Works 8 for a long time, but it began giving me trouble - when I

    went to change the Font or Size in the Word Processor, I would get the message:

    "Microsoft Works 8 has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for

    the inconvenience.."

    Aand so I uninstalled MSW 8 and since I had a MS Works 9 disk, I thought I would

    install it, which I did.
    However, the text/font size still did not work. I kept getting a pop-up saying "Microsoft

    Works 8 has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the

    inconvenience," and did i want to send report to MS. someone told me to do a

    Sys Restore to get back the MSW8, which I did. I was advised to uninstall MSW8

    using Revo (rather than Add/remove) and then reinstall MSW9. I am at a loss now as what to do.

    Does anyone know what is going on with this MSW8 and why I cannot use the Font or Size

    any longer? Should I just get rid of MSW8 or try to reinstall MSW9 from the disk I have?

    Just wanted to mention that when I go to the Spreadsheet in MSW8 I can change

    the font and Size and wonder why I can't use the Font or Size in the Word Processor?

    (I am trying to use a new paragraph in this thread, but I am not able to do so, and therefore apologize for the sentences running together.
