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,
Gerard

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...
