All right, I understand this now. If I happen to have any problems after a certain date, I will have to take my machine to computer store to get it fixed
Not necessarily - you would just come back to GeekstoGo.
On your previous thread - where rshaffer61 was assisting you, he resolved the problem for you.
There is no reason to believe it would be any different on a future thread, even when ALL support from Microsoft for XP finishes.
OUR support to you, when you need it, will not finish.

[quote]Just wondering what some of us are to do when we get new machines and have no idea how to run them.[/quote]You "run" Window 7 pretty much the same way as XP. Instead of clicking Start, your click on the start "Orb" icon, or you click an icon on your desktop.
The biggest "complaint", if you will, I have heard with Windows 7 is that it does not include Outlook Express. That said, email is not an operating system function so removing OE is probably the right path to take - technically speaking. Microsoft instead is offering Windows Live Mail (which is free). Or if you use Hotmail, Gmail or your ISP's webmail service, or if you use Outlook (totally different from Outlook Express despite similar names) then no problem anyway.
[quote]I write. I have heard that Windows 7 does not have Word.[/quote]Neither does XP! If you have Word, it is because you installed it on your XP machine, or the PC maker bundled it in with the PC when you bought it (perhaps as part of Microsoft "Works"). But in any case, no version of Windows ever came with Word. Windows 7 supports Microsoft Office/Word 2000 and newer. So if you bought a "retail" license of Word separately, then you can legally install it on your new Windows 7 machine (just make sure you uninstall it from the old machine). If the license for Word you have now is an OEM license (came pre-installed on your old machine) you will need to buy a new license to use on any new machine (Apple or Windows) you buy. That said, if you buy a new machine and Word (or Office) 2010, it will support all your old Word documents, and move you to a newer, much more secure platform.
In the meantime, Microsoft will continue to provide security updates for XP SP3 users until August 2014. So it is critical you are running SP3, IE8, and a good anti-malware solution and you keep your machine updated with the latest updates.

Don't be fooled by misleading advice and what someone may understand you are asking.
Word is a Office suite program and I believe it can be installed as a stand alone program. If you are not sharing the documents you created you may give some thought to Open Office as it is free and has the following programs just like Microsoft Office.
- Excel spreadsheet
- And a match calculation program
The problem is that Open Office can read Office documents but there still is issues with Office reading Open Office documents.
I have been using Open Office for over a year with no issues but I don't share my documents with others so it is not a issue with me that they are not compatible with Microsoft Office.
I hope this helps you out a little more.

Yeah, you can buy Word separately.

As long as you do not publish them and pocket the $millions you can print them out. Or, you can just just log in again and review them,
I shall print out your responses if I am allowed to do so.

Added a missing little tiny word that made a big big difference! ;) Thanks MBM.
