Microsoft Works has stopped working

HP Recommended
HPE-337c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HPE-337c is probably about 6-7 years old, but still going strong.  I am now "upgraded" to Windows 10 Home 64-bit from the originally installed Windows 7.  I have started getting a "Microsoft Works has stopped working" message when I try to save.  The MS Works came pre-installed.  Does anyone know if there is any help for me, like being able to download the most recent version of MS Works?  (It seems from what I have seen online that Microsoft no longer supports Works, but I would like to be able to continue using it.)

@richknapp,

You did not mention the version of Works.

See here for advice.

Sorry.  I didn't think it mattered much, since Microsoft seems to have stopped supporting it.  My version is 9.0 (2007).

I would be delighted to stay with Microsoft Works Version 9 if that is possible.  What I need to know is HOW / WHERE to accomplish this?  In my (apparently) feeble attempts to find a way to re-install or upgrade to a more recent version, I was unable to find any source from which to reinstall.
