Microsoft Works does not come with Access - that is a Microsoft Office product. Works does come with its own database, but it's not the same thing and I don't think it will read an Access file.

Gee, a MS product that's not compatible with another MS product. Who'd have guessed?

Anyway, check to see if Access is what you really need, and write back here.

Acer Process 4/12 eRecovery Management indicates that the recovery process never finished - you will have to run it all over again.
As for MS Office , it came as a one month trial in your laptop - if you had it for more than that then you bought it. In that case the activation key must still be in your possession, just insert it when asked.
In the absolute worst case (the reinstall never finishes, no matter what you try) you will have to get a separate recovery disk from

and use it to reinstall.

My computer is slow and choppy. Is there anything I can do at home to speed it up a little?


depends on what computer you have. you might wanna check one of those reg edit cleaners (be sure not to take a virus though). check if you have enough hardrive space (should always be ~15gb on your main partition). check your startup items, and remove those you dont want to. Check your drivers, if they are up to date (videocard driver ie).
and what always helps @ me, is a complete reinstall of the computer.

btw, what are the spec's of your computeR?

The first 60 days is a free trial. After that, you must buy it from Microsoft, if you want to continue using it, with full features.

hello,
I would try to use the windows backup and recovery feature if it's enabled. restore it to the previous day, also, for the windows system, did you create a backup disk. if so you should be able to reload any pre-existing programs to your system by running a restore from the recovery. without loosing all your personal files. also some will have an option when creating a recovery disk to make an applications recovery disk. If you haven't created these, i would check into this in the future.

Software not workin i guess


If it was pre-installed with Vista then you will need to call IBM Lenovo support for them to activate it.
If you purchased Vista as a standalone product then you will need to call Microsoft to have them activate it.

It sounds like someone else on the planet is using your number.

How do I re-install vista software without a CD?


1. Has your mate reformated the hard drive when loading XP?
2. Do you have the Product Key?, (This should be on the case on a little Microsoft sticker)

If no to question 1, you need to contact the company that sold you the PC to get a copy of the software CD, as the Vista OEM software you need to re-install has been deleted.

If no to question 2, you you need to contact the company that sold you the PC and get one, or report them to Microsoft.
