   Not using libre from free sites because they are 28 or 125 mb in size so i deleted those now 
using the full version 220 mb version  3.6.6. but thinking of trying 3.5.4 since some think that s 
the best version to try with windows 7 but trying abiword and I B M lotus and 
Kingsoft  maybe they won t throw fits at windows 7 so no hurry to reset w7; libre needs fixing not 
windows 7 .
Windows 7 came with the lap top; when i use save as i have 7 choices so which is the best to use; 
save as with libre and can i get a save doc format switched over to saved as; and would libre stop 
having win7 fits i wonder .
And a screen shot of what ? ?   Whew  later .  .  .

Hi :)
Did you uninstall all versions of 'LO' that you got from "some freeware site" and do an antivirus 
scan?  Did you download the 3.5.6 or 3.6.something LO from the official site and install as 

Is there any chance of giving us a screen-shot?

Also, just out of curiosity, have you used Win7 on any machine other than your own?  Has anyone 
else used your machine that might have some familiarity with Win7 when it's properly installed?  
Did you install Win7 or was it already on the machine when you bought it?  

Btw Abiword can save files in MS formats but you have to do
File - "Save As ..."
You can't set it to default to MS formats.  I tried nagging them about it but gave up.  The native 
format it uses is the OpenDocument Format, same as LO, same as almost every other word-processing 
program except MS and even they purport to support it as a non-native format.  So, people using MS 
Office 'should' be able to open your documents created in AbiWord.  I did mention all this when i 
made some suggestions about what other free word-processors were out there although not in as much

Hi :) 
To "get back to factory defaults" and 'switch off' all Extensions just rename your User Profile.  
Larry gave a link to help with that.  Here is another link that will one day be merged with the one 
Larry gave

Factory defaults are possibly a bit less tweaked than whatever you had installed so it may look a 
little different and may remove some weirdnesses.  It's a good thing to try whenever you find weird 
things going on.  It usually beats a reinstall assuming you have now installed a proper version of

I strongly recommend some computer crash curse. File name associations 
are free.  There is nothing hard wired to the system. You can open any 
file with any program you want. You can tell your desktop environment 
which programs can open which types of files and which single program is 
the preferred one to be used on double-click. 
First of all, any user who is forced to use MS Windows should turn off 
the option to hide known file name extensions. Since Windows '95 this is 
the major obstacle which prevents people from understanding their system.
