(*#^*^* Computer  
I so hate this damn machine right now!! It's effing slow and the thing doesn't want me to have Office 2010!!

I bought and downloaded yesterday and it gave me error messages. I didn't want to deal with it last night so I tried again this morning. Nothing. I called Microsoft and they worked on it for 2 hours and said it should work. I tried and it didn't, though I did get one less error message. I called back again, talked for an hour and we're now seeing if it installs. The guy left a chat window up. ALl this because of Excel.

They removed my previous Office (well Word 2007) so I have no idea what will happen to my stories and transcripts if this doesn't work.

OK, the error message came back! Argh!!!

ETA: 6:00 and they still can't get the damn thing to work!! They say they'll research it and call tomorrow. I'm getting ready to ask for my money back. This will most definitely delay the transcript. I really don't want to start over but I might pick up from somewhere near where I left off and continue in Works. If anyone here is tech savvy and wants to assist, please do!

I'm sorry for your computer woes, I feel your pain.
(Disclaimer: I didn't do it!)
Hope it gets fixed and you don't lose stuff.

But your frustrated mood theme? Excellent.

Heh, you really have to watch Psych.

The Microsoft techs are gonna research it and call back tomorrow to try a few things.

So you have the files, but they're saved in Word format? What I would do is upload the files to Google Docs. Then even if your computer completely crashes, you won't have lost anything. Good luck! The only thing worse than computer problems is car problems, and they're both completely dreadful!!!

I converted to text and then to wps so I have them. Google docs might be a good thing, too

I've found a way around it so I might get to work on it tomorrow, depending how long the techs are.
