Right click removable drive and select and format the drive. Then scan and fixes all errors. So all the bad sectors are fixed.

In the File System drop down, select FAT


If you right click Removable Drive >Properties

The General Properties of the USB drive reveals it is FAT, so I use FAT in the format utility. Then just select “Quick Format” and “Start” and all data will be deleted and hopefully all errors are now gone.

I type a document, store it and when I retrieve it the entire doc. is scrambled! Tell me what to do.please

In what document format did you save it? When saving files like word document you should save the file as ".doc" extension so that other versions of MS Office can recognize the format. Now, what you need to do is open and edit the file from the PC where you typed it then try saving the file again with a compatible format like ".doc".

Thanks and Regards,

My flashdrive cannot delete and save files.what can you recommend that fight in this virus?

Go into my computer, then right click the drive and select 'format'. The format options should be NTFS or FAT32, select FAT32 and hit format. From there see if you can save/delete.

Free microsoft word download

For a free trial version you can try the link below:
However, if you are looking for free office productivity suite, open office would be the easier option, as it is totally free and works as good as or even better than MS office. Try the link below for the same.
Open office does way better than the Home and student MS office version do. Though open office saves in .odt format instead of the .doc format, you can save in .doc format also. If you want to send a document in .doc format to someone who can read only .doc format, this helps. Like wise, you can save in MS office formats for spread sheet or presentations. Open office also give you the option of saving in PDF format, if you want to send a document which is not editable by the recipient. One also will get a great selection of fonts and clip art galleries.

I want to save scanned document as a .doc using CanoScan 8400F

Scanners only see millions of dots. Unless it has software to convert a picture into a document, all documents are seen by scanners as pictures made of of millions of dots. Software is available to convert it to a Microsoft Doc format but it is very expensive.
