get rid of word

I have word starter and word (trial). The trial has ended and when I open my docx files I get the trial to open. I cant set the docx files to be opened by the starter ed of word (yes I looked a the  path from desktop icon of word starter).

If I remove the trial then isnt this tricky?

Use OpenOffice. It's Free.

Did you install both Office starter and the full version trial?  Are they the same version? (i.e. 2010, 2013, etc.)

My best advice to you is to remove both installs of office, reboot and reinstall office starter.

you cant download word starter anymore and I cant open docx files after I uninstalled office trial.
You can always download the MS Word Viewer for free here:  Microsoft Word Viewer

If you don't have the installation media for the version of Office you have licensing for then you'll either need to buy a copy or get rid of it and go with a free office suite like OpenOffice.

word starter works it just wont associate docx files with word starter. the word starter is located at cvh.exe and this doesnt load word files
