It is still in my system and even a very skilled technician couldn't do it. This is also creating problems to my Word as I visualize some strange lines between one button and another. This is not major, but I have the feeling that somewhere it is affecting my machine and maybe making my system unstable...Does anybody know how to clean my computer from Wordfast demo? Thank you

Dear Barbara,

It is very easy. You just need to delete a few files.
In fact, it is enough if you delete all occurences of wordfast.dot
The other WF files may stay on your computer, but will not do any harm.
Here are the detailed instructions:

Just delete all files called "wordfast". Remember, depending on your operating system, you may have to specifically specify that your search includes hidden folders (Windows XP comes to mind).

You can just deactivate Wordfast when you go to Add-Ins and uncheck the checkbox with Wordfast.
After that there will be no Wordfast buttons in your MSWord and Worfast will not affect your Word-Settings any more.

If you want to delete it just go to the MS-Office Startup folder and rename, move to another folder or just remove the file with the name wordfast.dot
