I have MS WORD 97 on my PC. I want to download a newer version of Word. I prefer a free copy. Can someone recommend a safe site for doing this?

Microsoft itself will allow you to download a 60 day trial version of Office.

Perhaps the alternative free suites Open Office or LibreOffice are something that you might look into.


RE: downloading MS WORD

Microsoft has 'Microsoft Office Starter Edition' free sort of light edition, word/excell/something else .. search that 8 you probably can find it.

Make a portable one click install too, otherwise you will have some extra errors in your error logs.

I got rid of word & installed Kingsoft Office 2012 .. its free edition. Which is much smaller & less intrusive than the others.... which is OK for me.
