Is there any online resource that functions like microsoft word that I can use to get my paper appropriately edited? Within the hour?

My microsoft word suddenly decided to start popping up with a "error in program". I might be able to figure out how to fix it but I know very little about fixing anything to do with computers and I need to get my paper edited in time for class.

ACK! Is there anything online that functions like this? Copy and paste your paper and then make it double spaced? Thirty minutes til I need to leave. Egads!
I see some "free grammar check" types programs that say "click allow if prompted" and it makes me think they are sketchy-- how sketchy are they? Like this one:
