Do your doc open correctly if you open Word first (open Word first, select FILE - OPEN and then the file, the DOC file opens)?
You can also open your word doc with IE or Firefox:
Launch IE, then at the File Menu, choose "Open" and browse to the Word File. You can also try Firefox the same way (or right click the doc and choose open with and find IE)
make sure your text wasn't accidently changed to white-then it would look like a blank page, see if you can highlight the text.
The files may have been saved as Macro enabled docs. Right click on one of the documents, click Save As. Choose Save As a normal doc. The next time you open it, it should open correctly.

For a free trial version you can try the link below:
However, if you are looking for free office productivity suite, open office would be the easier option, as it is totally free and works as good as or even better than MS office. Try the link below for the same.
Open office does way better than the Home and student MS office version do. Though open office saves in .odt format instead of the .doc format, you can save in .doc format also. If you want to send a document in .doc format to someone who can read only .doc format, this helps. Like wise, you can save in MS office formats for spread sheet or presentations. Open office also give you the option of saving in PDF format, if you want to send a document which is not editable by the recipient. One also will get a great selection of fonts and clip art galleries.
I use Office 2003, and have installed and currently employ the "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint File Formats" mentioned in article. This is, for the most part, seamless when reading in Office 2007 .DOCX or .PPTX files, for examples, in Office 2003.
Its seems that your filels are saved under different format. In order to find out just give a search for documents created *.* indicating the date and time when you scanned it. It will show you the the file and you can know the extension also. Then you can open it with relevant software. In case you require further assistance just quote back.
if you are using microsoft office 2007 then by default it save as docx form..... I suggest you to save this file into the doc 2003 which have a utility in ofice..to convert in doc 2003 format...(because most of the user still using office 2003)
Just go to file option menu and there is option for save as click and save this doc.....(if you find a solution plz rated us)
I strongly suspect that the files have been saved to a directory that you were not intending to use, hence my suggestions to locate the files.
First option: Open the program (a blank document will do) and select File - Save As . . .
Look at the top of the dialog box and check where the files are being saved to. If the files are there and the location is not where you thought it should be - select the files you want and RIGHT Click these, select copy (for safety) and manouvre to the Folder where you want the documents to be located (use the drop down list at the top of the dialog box) - when you have opened the correct location, Right Click in the opened folder and select Paste.
You will still need to go into the Tools - Options menu in the program and find where files are automatically saved and change this to your desired location. This saves having to check the Save As . . dialog box everytime you want to save a new document.
Second option: Open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) which can be found under the Start Button - All Programs - Accessories. In the Search box either type in the name of the document (if this is known) or just *.doc (or whatever the extension is eg *.xls). Note the "*" is a wild card symbol which means that it will match any and all letters or numbers in any combination and then followed by ".doc". This will find ALL documents that end in ".doc" not just the ones you are looking for!
The first search will only find files in the open Folder that match the query. I'm guessing that your files are not there. Now select Advanced Search and select C:\ to be searched. This will now find ALL files ending in ".doc" on the hard drive.
View the results as "Details". Locate your files (select "name" as the sort order to make this simpler). If you had a new document and just hit the Save button (or selected Save under File), then the files could be named as the first few words of the document - so look for this as well.
In the details section will be the Pathway to the files (eg C:\Samsung\Inprocessor\Drivers\Resume.doc). You can then go to this directory and using Edit - Cut (or Copy) remove the file from there, then open the directory that you want the file to be placed in (eg Documents) and again using Edit - Paste to put the file into that directory.
