Windows 7: can't find MS "Works" after installing MS Office Pro 2010

can't find MS "Works" after installing MS Office Pro 2010

I am using a Toshiba laptop that I purchased brand new approx a month ago. It came with Windows 7.

I recently installed Microsoft Office Pro 2010 and I just noticed that I can't find MS Works. When you install Office Pro 2010 does it delete Works? I am sure my computer had this software at one time.

Is it possible that the Works version was a demo that came with my computer and it was replaced when I installed 2010?

I see under all programs: All Programs> Microsoft Office> Re-install MS Office Pro 2007 Trial -- If I reinstall MS Office Pro 2007 Trial will "Works" come back?

I see in my recycle bin the following: mssefullinstall-amd64fre-en-us-vista=Windows 7
Is this where my MS Works went?

Thanks in advance for any help,

No reinstalling office will not bring "Works" back, they are seperate products. Try looking in the c:\program files\ folder for "microsoft works." If its still there the shortcuts might have been deleted and you can just re-create them.

My 2nd question is what do you need MS Works for, that office 2010 will not do?

The program in your recycle bin is Microsoft Security Essentials (64bit) thats the antivirus application you installed.
