    I was going to say WordPad, but I see that the version included with 7201 X64 does not support .doc. I had no idea MS had removed that capability.

    I have never tried this:

    OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite

    but it may help.

    I continue to use Office 2003. The student version was fairly inexpensive, as is the still available home/student version of Office 2007. (I know that cheap is not the same as free.)

    As the others mentioned... use OpenOffice.org. I've used it for a long time and it's a fantastic FREE alternative to MS Office. I'm using the 64-bit version right now and it works smoothly.

    Openoffice.org or you can use Google Docs if you have gmail account.
