Microsoft Works is a piece of standard software that often comes preinstalled on new computers. For some time, the download was available for free, but has consequently been pulled by Microsoft.
Important Note February 2015
Microsoft has taken down all previous and current download servers (msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net, msft.digitalrivercontent.net, digitalrivercontent.net and drcdn.blob.core.windows.net)! At this point it is unlikely that the free downloads will ever return.
In case you a pre-installed or paid-for version of Works, and require the installation file, you can consider to ask Microsoft for a replacement CD.
Purchase Microsoft Works 9.0
Alternatively, you can purchase the software fresh from an online shop such as eBay or Amazon. It's much cheaper than Microsoft Office, and should be sufficient for home use. There's only one single edition of Microsoft Works 9.0 available for purchase containing the components "Calendar", "Database", "Portfolio", "Spreadsheet" and "Word Processor":
