    I went to get Open Office several weeks ago 'cause I thought it was free but it required me to "register" and pay a fee (can't remember the amount) to get the "free" program. Did I miss something?

    (I didn't pay, I cancelled.)

    Did you go to OpenOffice.org? The last time I downloaded it, it was free. Hmmm....

    I've never heard of someone being charged for OO. From their website:

    and it's free
    Best of all, OpenOffice.org 3 can be downloaded and used entirely free of any licence fees. OpenOffice.org 3 is released under the LGPL licence. This means you may use it for any purpose - domestic, commercial, educational, public administration. You may install it on as many computers as you like. You may make copies and give them away to family, friends, students, employees - anyone you like.

    You didn't go to http://www.openoffice.org/ You probably ended up at a site like http://openoffice.org-suite.com They'll charge you for free software.

    Hi has anyone tried TEAMVIEWER??

    Its a program sort of like remoteadmin or VNC. You can remotely access any pc connected to your LAN or to the internet. It is very easy to use and is free.
