The "GRUB WORDS" you are referring to is a helpful error message when it comes to diagnosing your problem. Can you try to type the exact error message here?

If you picked the option to install in addition to the other two operating systems -- the grub menu should have a section that includes Windows as a choice.

Assume no 'Wubi' installation.

Since there're more than two OS installed, try to reinstall Grub_2

I would not want to re-install Grub 2 until we ensure there are no entries for Windows in grub.

Can you help with this problem?
