Anyone know where I can get Microsoft Word?Having comp. problems

My computer is pissing me off. I had kazaalite and I go to turn my computer on and all of my files on my computer are transfering to my shared folder on kazaalite. So I finally get it to stop uploading the files and I erased the program kazaalite. BIG MISTAKE it went through and erased all my files. I need to type a paper and My word is gone and so is "wordpad" and "text document" Also a lot of my other programs are down I click on then and it just says searching .....arrrrrghhhh. Anyone know where I can get a copy of at least word by itself to type this paper?
Thanks alot.

Where did you get Word in the first place? Have you attempted to re-install it? You might try downloading Star Office or a free trial of some other word processor to get you going.

Looks like Star isn't free anymore. I don't know anything about this one but it says it's free:

OpenOffice is StarOffice missing a few fonts, database, file filters, templates, etc.

The core is the same.

OpenOffice = Good. And the fact it's free makes it all the more better, imo. I never used MS Office very extensively, so the thought of paying for it, for just some basic word and excel stuff, made no sense. OOo is perfect, in that respect.
