I have MS word starter 2010 installed on my sony Vaio laptop, I dont have the full paid version, but when opening the starter to simply write a letter it keeps jamming up, so I thought it might be better to download a free wordprocessor programme for letters and labels etc., (i dont do complex things on Word) - what would the experts recommend? thanks LAPTOPDUNCE

OpenOffice is free, well reviewed and compatible with MS Office.

Free LibreOffice here is also compatible with MS docs.

Fully endorse the two above suggestions.

Forgot to add, that the Major Geeks website offers some choices or possible suggestions on other word programmes that might help, including the two above click here

"....I thought it might be better to download a free wordprocessor programme for letters and labels etc.,"

I would have thought it better to simply repair your Office Starter as it only takes a few mouse clicks:

Go to Control Panel -> Programs & Features -> select "Microsoft Office Starter 2010" -> click the "Change" button at the top -> answer "yes" when asked if you want to repair the installation.
