Some persons on this site have said that they use Word 2000 with Win7,
but what I would like to know is whether anyone has downloaded Word 2000

hassle during the download or subsequently.
I installed the Greek edition of Word 2000 on a computer running
Windows 7. At first, some of the dialogue boxes in Word 2000 were
