Customer Question
I can not open...

I can not open my WORD program. Message says that there was a problem, that Microsoft closed and that they will attempt to get things up and running. It's possible, however, that I will lose what I'd been working on. (The problem has going for several days now and the program remains closed. What can I do?

Technician's Assistant: When could you last open your Word?

Probably about a week ago. I hadn't used WORD in a while. Thank you for being so prompt.

Technician's Assistant: Did you recently update your software or Operating System (OS)?

I don't think so. Messages come in about updates, but I had forgotten my Microsoft password ***** couldn't do the updates. (Think I have it now.)

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

No thank you. I have very limited skills with programs and computers. I would like to use WORD in preparation for correspondance.
