I am running a Compaq Presario with Windows ME. When it came to us it had microsoft works. I've removed it and added microsoft word and now the wife would like works to run a recipe and grocery planner she saw on works. Can I recover the removed works? I would appreciate the help!

Works should be on the recovery disk(s) that came with the Presario. I remember seeing it in the recovery partition on my old Compaq, so the recovery disk should be able to reinstall it. Have you checked to see if there is a similar template on the MS Office site? Using a Word template would eliminate the need to have both Word and Works on your computer.

There are both recipe cards and grocery lists for Word there.

Also look on the Start Menu - programs. Check the list of programs for something called 'SmartRestore' or something similar which allows you to install a bundled application without doing a full recovery.
