    Can anyone help with my Microsoft Office Starter 2010?

    When I tried to use it it keeps reverting to a newer version which won't give me any features unless I upgrade. Have been googling and tried un-installing it and re-installing but now all I get is "click 2 run configuration failure". Anyone know what I can do or any other programme I can use thats safe. I only use it for the odd letter and the kids homework. Any help appreciated, thanks.

    libreoffice.org/ is pretty damn good, similar enough to the MS Office suite not to be too hard to get used to, and completely free.

    The answer to your problem seems to be uninstalling and reinstalling as described in the thread below;

    Thanks for everyones time so far, as I said I've already done an uninstall/reinstall and thats how I'm getting the error message. I'll have a go at one of these others.

    Useful answers!

    Tried this too! No joy Thanks tho

    First copy any files you need to a USB stick or DVD drive, then reformat the c: drive and leave the office disk in the cd drive. Once the reformat is finished the office disc should start automatically. You will have to look up full instructions or see if there is a recovery method for the machine you are using without reformatting. Often uninstalling/reinstalling programs creates loads of problems and causes problems to run programs. A clean recovery would clear out any problems. Look up the model number on the internet and sure you will find instructions.

    OpenOffice is good, but LibreOffice has more active development and therefore more updates. That was my factor in choosing it over OpenOffice.

    Evy
