Re: Not able to open Word documents
Somehow, it is corrupted and you will need to reinstall microsoft word. This has happened to me so you will need to uninstall and reinstall it. Hopefully you made backup copys of your word documents. I always send me a copy of my word documents to my email so in case anything like this happens, I have a copy of it stored.

-Run regedit (Start menu, run, etc.) and go to this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Word\Addins -Export all the addins to a reg file (for backup) -Then delete all of them in the registry (or one at a time if you want to know which addin is causing the problem, -Now try opening a .docx or .doc file in windows explorer and find that document loads properly with out any error messages! -now exit MS Word and open the reg file(s) you exported and import them back -try opening a .docx file again and the problem is fixed. hope this works for you
I'm not sure why you'd have to upload a word document without the file extension, but you can do it by following these instructions:
Open Windows Explorer Browse to the folder that has your document in it Go to the Tools Menu (if there's none, press the ALT button) Choose Folder Options Select the 'View' tab Make sure that the tickbox for 'Hide extensions for known file types' is NOT ticked Click Ok until you are back to the folder with your document in it.
It should now have a name like Document.doc or Document.docx
Click on the file once, then once it is highlighted click again, and you can delete the .doc or .docx part.
Press enter when you are happy with the filename. Windows will give you a warning message saying it's not a good idea, but you can click ok past this.
If you are trying to upload a file WITH a file extension, follow the same instructions above, and instead of deleting the .doc or .docx, simply add it to the end of the filename.
Well, I need more specifics to answer fully, but perhaps you moved WORD documents and have not installed the Office Suite on the new machine. The program that wants to be called when you try to open a document MUST be installed, or you get the message that you are receiving.
I'd suggest you to do TWO things: 1. to check the BULK/SPAM folder too; maybe the messages got there. It happens sometimes even the senders are people you are communicating with many times; 2. verify if the last few days the server(s) where your e-mail account was created on were not DOWN. It happens too many times - even with well-known web sites. This case you even may write a message to the site administrator (usually the address is something like "email@example.com/net/org/etc.") and ask him if the last few days the servers had had some technical problems.
It could be your computer needs more ram memory, or if you have enough you need to reload office. Also go into control panel, click on system-->& advanced tab click the button that sayes best performance,& try that.
New computers come with a FREE TRIAL version of Office (usially Office 2007 student)
This lasts for 60 days, you will need to buy a licence if you want to continue, buy a different version, use an illegal copy or try a Free alternative. Open Office
The recovery disk will wipe out everything on your computer to the way it came out of the factory. In other words, you'll have a fresh, clean, non-updated copy of Windows -- and lose all the documents you want.
Now, you say you can't get into your documents. What, exactly, is happening? What is this screen you see?
IF you're getting an error message when you try to open a file: Right-click on the file Select Open With Find the program you want Select "Always open with this application" Hit OK.
If you're getting an error message when you try to go to "My Documents," you may have to rebuild it. In the short term you can go to Start: My Computer: C drive, Documents and Settings, your username, Documents.
