    You can download OpenOffice, it’s free. It’s not quite as great as Word, but it is free and will get your essay typed. :)

    You can always use Live Office by signing up for an account at it is the official word program, free to use online. Currently Microsoft offers Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and OneNote online. once you complete the document and save it online, you can download it to your computer or put it in an online share folder, etc.

    open office is basically a free version of word, only not as good.

    You can use wordpad that comes free with windows and saves as a DOC file. It is much more limited than the full version of Word, but the basic functionality is there and you do not have to install a huge bulky program like OpenOffice

    If you have Microsoft Works on your machine, Works Word Processor can produce .doc files. Here’s how:1. In Works, click the File->Save As menu item.2. Set the Save as File Type list box to Word Document.3. Save the document.Note that this will create a totally new document. It will not affect any existing document.Hope that helps.
