when I buy my Dell last year, I got this Microsoft Works 7.0. It says 'Word processor, Calendar, spreadsheet etc....

So Word processor means MS Word?

I always thought those products were different. And cause conflicts if you have both Works and Office installed.

I think they are. Works creates .wps for work processing I think. But yeah having both installed isn't a good idea.

I installed both with no problem.

with works it's better to save the file as a .doc so it will be more compatible
