      when you use MSWorks you have to SAVE AS instead of just using save, this way you can save it in a format that any one can use, such as
      *.doc (MSWord)
      *.pdf (Adobe PDF reader)
      *.rtf (text format with your page format)
      or just plain
      remember by using SAVE AS you control where and what type of file you are saving

     I thought you might like to add this one too for any budding developers out there -The site for the Beta of Visual Studio 2008 Enterprise(Visual Basic 2008 Visual C++, Visual C# and Visual Web Developer), I am sure when this is updated to the 2008 alpha version the sight will direct you to it however for the time being all Betas will work until March 15th 2008 thats FIVE MONTHS to learn all the new bits and bobs also I think it helpful for people to stop asking for ‘free’ copies of Operating Systems, unless they are Beta too its called ‘A Pirate Copy’ and Microsoft can talk to there lawyers about it too…

    Hi, last year I purchased a laptop at a yard sale an it has been working fine until December of 09. I powered up my laptop an a pop up appeared on my lower rt. of my screen saying "I may be a victim of software counterfeiting" an ask for genuine microsoft software an a blue two tone star appeared on my desk top. All my functions work still but my screen saver does not stay on. How can I remove this on my laptop? thanks! Kenny

    Hi,My desk top keeps saying that ,my computer is at risk,because it did not pass genuine microsoft software.How can I fix it,and can some one help me with a genuine microsoft software for downloading.Thanks,Bush.

  27. Blake says:

    Mabhena . . . if your Windows is indeed "geniune" then there’s nothing to worry about (except fixing your Windows)When Windows fails validation, you’re directed to a customized Web page with details about what caused the failure and recommendations for how to fix the problem. Along with a telephone number for your version of Windows. I’ve had to call them to revalidate a Windows copy MANY times. It’s easy and quick . . . that is IF your Windows is "genuine"!
