Office 97 on Windows 98 compatability with Office 2007 on Windows

Word 2007, Excel 2007 and PowerPoint 97 all have an option to save files in
97-2003 format, so it would be a pretty good guess that they can read files
in that form. That it is running on Windows...

ScanDisk test

It means that the file system is just fine. Scandisk does not test the

This is why it's ok to copy, distribute, download and use Microsoft products

So if I discover that my neighbour has been convicted of tax fraud, it's OK
