if i was you i wouldn't use trials. in trials you can't use much funtions (eg. older docs). i think that if you like simple (like word 2001) you can download open office for free here: - The Free and Open Productivity Suite. it can use doc formats. i am using it also. it works perfect.

edit: if you still want to use the office trial you should post something in the office part of this forum.
