Hi,

I've just installed the free version of Wordfast. I followed the instructions as in the manual and all went fine. I tried using it today, but I got an error message stating that:

"Wordfast is pirated or infected! Contact your hotline."

Now I closed it, and tried to went on working with a different document (without using wordfast), but I get the same delay period and notification whenever I press delete or backspace!!

I tried removing wordfast through tools>templates ... but once I check or uncheck its box, the button "remove" goes dead and I'm not allowed to press it.

I want my MS Word back again :'(

Please help!! How can I remove wordfast?? What went wrong in the first place!!

You probably saved changes to Wordfast.dot at some time during the installation.

Regards,

"Wordfast is pirated or infected! Contact your hotline." Sep 14, 2007

Hi,

I downloaded Wordfast to my notebook (XP Home, Word 2000) but after installation it doesn't want to work. So I deleted all the files and re-installed it again but it keeps on bugging me - what shall I do next?
On Wf's website I read something about add-ins from FineReader which may cause strange problems but there is no such template in my Word.

Thanks in advance!

Charlotte

@ Gerard: I didn't change anything during installation...
