You could try running the MS Works 8 uninstaller in 'Add-Remove Programs', and it should offer to repair it.

Have you changed the setting in Display Properties, (Start > Settings > Display Properties), under the Desktop tab, then Customize desktop, to the "Run Desktop Cleanup WIzard every 60 days", option?

Do you have MS Works on your computer at all, eg in Start > Programs, (or All Programs). If so, is there an MS Works Calendar shortcut there?

What happens if you open the Works Calendar. Can you set it's options to not start on start-up?

1. search Harddrive for WKS8XP.exe (Works clean-up Utiliy)

(If you cannot find, search your Works Cd)

2. Run WKS8XP.exe

3. got to Control Panel/ add/remove programs and Un-install Microsoft Works

4. Got to works CD and Install works

all should be good

Unfortunately you will lose all calendar entries

in doc & settings/all users/app data/ microsoft/works/ , MSWKSCAL.wcd ( your saved calendar items) seems to get corrupted
