WORD Documents unable to open anymore - NEED HELP!

Q: WORD Documents unable to open anymore - NEED HELP!

I'd had just gotten a brand new harddrive for my laptop and once I brought all my old documents from word over to the new harddrive from my USB drive and then reinstalled Microsoft Office Home & Student 2007 and I try to open a document up an error message pops up saying "C:/Users/Sean/Documents/____/___.doc is not a valid Win32 application". Is there a way to get rid of this or bypass this and get my document to work again? Any help would be very grateful and I would appreciate it.

Preferred Solution: WORD Documents unable to open anymore - NEED HELP!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Open a command prompt and type in:

assoc .doc

Then see what it tells you.

(Note that there is a space between assoc and .doc)

Hello,
For some reason, when I click on on Microsoft Works, I get a quick flash of it trying to open & then NOTHING!!
I have sooo many important saved documents that I really need to be able to open again...
I have gotten rid of Microsoft Money & maybe Microsoft Office as well but not sure...
Any ideas on what I can try??

A:unable to open up word documents

Does it work by opening Word, then opening the document from there?

If so, make sure .docx is associated with Word, which is located here as "WINWORD.EXE":

Unable to open Microsoft Office documents(excel,word) in Internet Explorer when we enforce strict TLS 1.2 protocol (Disabling SSL v2,SSL v3,TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1)on the webserver. We tested by removing strict TLS 1.2 and IE is able to open the document fine.
Error description : We see a Microsoft Excel Security Warning with the following content.
Certificate error
The application experienced an internal error loading the SSL libraries.

When we disabled SSL V2 and SSL V3, the document opens fine but when TLS 1.0 is disabled we are seeing the  pop-up with certificate error. We tried to open the reports in CSV format, 2007 format and 2003 format and all of them have the same issue. Does
Internet Explorer have any restrictions when TLS 1.2 is strictly enabled ?

Note : We are able to download the document using Internet explorer and the document opens fine from local but opening the document from the browser fails with certificate error.

Hi,

Got a problem with Word and Excel 2007.

Both programs open ok (under 2 seconds), so no problems there.

The problem is opening the program by means of opening a document. It takes about 1 minute

Exactly the same thing with both Word and Excel.

Has anyone got a solution? Surely there must be a quick little registry tweak to sort this out?

Other info:

Hi All,

I work on a web application that has Excel and Word documents in it.

At the moment when a user opens these documents in IE9 they get presented with a dialog box asking:

What do you want to do with "filename"?

The user is presented with Open, Save and Save As as the options.

Unlike previous versions of IE there is no check box to tick to remember the user's choice so it comes up every time.

I really need to get rid to this box. Does anyone know how to disable it?

Thanks

Tom

My 2000 MS Word stopped opening the documents I have on file. The error message : "There was a problem sending the command to the program" keeps coming up after the document tries to open. I can create and save documents, but then cannot open them to view the content. This started after the removal of roaming defender spyware by SpyHunter software. I don't have any files blocked by SpyHunter and still have the issue with Word with SpyHunter deactivated.I am wondering if a file got removed in the spyware clean up and removal?

I am at work on one of the computers on their network. This machine is used my three or four people so how the problem started is just a guess. Word, Excel, Powerpoint all open with "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Professional." If I try to open any file I created in the past, the same thing happens. I thought I would run scanreg but apparently that command does not work. Lost, and my boss is too cheap to call in a tech, so I am stuck with no word processing. I am typing this on line however with the machine in question. Any ideas? Thanks. (The signature below is my machine at home)

Windows 2000 Professional
Office 2000.

If open a blank word document, type something and click file>save as, nothing happens. I cannot save anything. It simply doesnt work. I dont get any errors either.

If I click start>run and type winword /a and try saving a document it works fine!

Things I have tried:

1. detect and repair (took 4 hours!!)
2. deleted normal.dot to create a new one.
3. Deleted the 9.0 key in the registry.
4. Removed and reinstalled Office 2000.
5. Searched MSKB and google.com



No resolutions so far!

Maybe its a setting somewhere?

Any ideas?

A:Unable to Saving documents in Word

Heidi, have you tried all the different methods of saving documents in Word, including clicking on File, Save As, and instead of trying to save documents via the File link, clicking on the Windows orb in the upper-left corner of the screen and there, clicking the Save or Save As buttons?

Also, you might want to go into your Word Options, first to the Save section, and see whether your settings are what you want. Then go to the Advanced section and scroll way down to the Save section to see if changing some of those options would make a difference.

When you're finished, don't forget to go all the way down to the bottom of the screen to either make the changes to just that document or to all future documents based on that template.

A:cant open my word documents...

Do you have Microsoft word installed? Go to your Start Menu and look through your programs for a folder named Microsoft, Inside should be a program called Microsoft Word. If not, than you need to buy Microsoft Word, or download Open-office, just google it. It is a free alternative to Word, and it can open word. If you do have word than when that prompt comes back up than select "select program from list" and choose Microsoft Word. Good Luck , without computer for 6 days will check back then . And maybe someone here will help if you need further assistance.

Using Windows 7 64-bit.

When I click a Word document in Explorer or on the Start menu, I get the error "There was a problem sending the command to the program". I'm using Word 2003, but I don't get this problem with Excel 2003.

I know that when I try to open a document this way, the program uses the command switches "/n" -- which means "open a new instance of Word", -- and "/dde" -- which I don't know what it means. I do know that I don't want the /n switch.

1) How can I remove the /n switch? Remember, I'm not clicking on a shortcut, but on a document icon. I know how to assign the "Open With" command, but I don't see any options about changing command-line switches.

2) Is the /dde switch causing my problem? How do I remove it?

My wife needs all these documents for teaching, so they are very important and I am hoping someone here can help me restore all of these files. I would guess there are 20 - 30 files with this problem.

Greetings all.
How do I open two Word documents in Windows7?

In XP I could just click on two documents and both would open. That doesn't work in Windows 7. When I click on the second document the first one disappears.

I often need two documents open so that I can copy and paste between them, see any changes I'm making and compare the two. Having the two open at the same time is much more convenient than having to keep opening and closing them as I have to do in Windows7.

I tried some suggestions that I found on the internet, such as selecting the two documents and clicking, or using OPEN but in each case only one document opens.

I can open two of other types of files, such as PowerPoint shows, so it appears to be related to Word somehow.

I'm using Word 2003.

Rod.

A:How do I open two Word documents in Windows7?

Word 2003 can't open the newer Word .docx format or Powerpoint presentations. It's been so long since I used it that I can barely remember its functions - but it may need to be installed in XP compatibility mode if you would like it to work properly in Windows 7...

I use OpenOffice Writer and when I send information from it to my brothers, who use MS OFFICE Word, they cannot open anything that I send them. Is there a free plug-in that will open OpenOffice on their computers. OpenOffice is much too large for them to have both OpenOffice and MS Office on their computers and they say Word is easier for them to use and is much better than OpenOffice Writer and of course much more expensive. I did a search here but found nothing on this, of course I may not have used the right key words etc. If the explaination is on this forum will someone kindly point me in the right direction?

With any document you wish to send them, click File, Save As, then at the bottom of the window beside the cancel button click the drop down arrow and select to save the document as 97/2000/XP format.

There are two images attached. The first image shows the error message that appears when trying to open word documents that come in email attachments. 
To resolve this you need to save the image, right click it and go to properties and click the unlock button and then it works again.
 
Other people do not have this issue, using office 2010. 
 
Is there a way to make it so documents just open without needing to be unlocked? 
 
Thanks!

When I click on the name of Word document in a folder to open it, it hangs and then says "Not responding". (This just started happening.) I have the same problem with files in Excel and html (where I use Firefox).

However, I can open files fine if I go to Word and use File, Open.

For some reason, I can still use a folder to open PowerPoint and Adobe files.

I have Windows XP and use Office 2007.

I regularly scan my computer for viruses (with Norton) and for spyware (with SpySweeper) and haven't found any problems.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

A:Word/Excel documents won't open from folder

Hey Ray,

I had a similar problem which was probably different than yours, but here it is for your info. I couldn't access EXCEL or WORD. I would get a lock up and eventually a "can't open excel' message. The short of it was my NORTON had gotten corrupted and because it was set to scan those documents upon opening, it cause them to halt.

Maybe that tidbit will lead you somewhere. Good luck.

I have another problem and am not sure if the two are related. When my windows 98 pc boots a window appears on the taskbar that reads "Driver memory error". It disapears soon after.

I have Word 2002 which is part of MS Works (came pre-installed), and I have MS office Pro 2000. They all work great except that it seems like Word is getting slower and slower to open and close documents. Most of theses documents are in the 20 to 60 KB in size and have one small graphic, the company logo.

A document takes about 6-7 seconds to open and about 6 seconds to close. It seems like they are getting slower.

My computer is clean, no viruses, no spyware or malware. I use disk cleanup and defrag regularly. I have 256 MB ram, P4 1.7 Gh, 40 Gb hard drive with 69 % unused. I wondered if more ram would help. OS is XP Home. I have AVG antivirus, Zone Alarm Pro, Spywareguard, Palm Hot Sync, CookieWall running all the time. Everything else is fast on my computer except Word.

Any ideas and advice welcome. Thank you.

Try Office Experts Word troubleshooting, only do the steps until it works right, but you may need to do at least 3 and 5.

Also, if you have a recent Norton, there's a setting in there (under Misc?) that scans Office documents when you open them. Turn it off.

Recently, however, I couldn't open Word at all, it would just have that image of Word and "this product is liscenced to..." I later went online trying to find a solution and found out that I should delete the normal.dot templates. So I deleted the files normal.dot, normal11.dot, and a normal that looked like it came from the office 2007 trial (Microsoft Office Word Macro-Enabled Template). Well, this allowed me to open Word and save files. However, I can't open any saved files. Is there any solution to this? Thanks, I'm not particularly good with computers.

I can't open word documents by double clicking the document file. When i do this, i get an error message 'not enough memory or disk space to run outlook' (although i am not trying to open outlook!)

The only way i can open documents is to open word 2007 and then open documents through there.
the file associations are all set to word.

This problem started because i could not choose word as my default programme for docx files. i changed the programme file name from WINWORD.EXE. to WORD.EXE. and i managed to set the default programme as word, but now i have this problem.

A:can't double click to open word documents

Have you gone into the Control Panel's Default Programs menu and made sure that Word has all of the required defaults?

Control Panel (All Items) > Default Programs > Set your default programs

If that doesn't help, you can set the default for a particular program through the file associations menu.

Control Panel (All Items) > Default Programs > Set Associations

That should atleast allow you to cause .doc, .docx and all other Word related file types to open in Word 2007.

The problem lies within Windows and not word it seems. While the icon for docx files show the Word 2013 icon, it refuses to open with Microsoft Word 2013.

It worked flawlessly since its install last Wednesday downloaded right from Office.com with the user name that was provided to me by KVCC, the college I attend. Office 2013 licenses are provided to all students as of 2016. Not even a week later, it is messing up. Word can still open .doc & .odt files but not docx files.

But now, every time I open Word, I am faced with a little index card sized field to type in. I can't see what I'm typing! The index card sized thing is surrounded by a sea of gray. I didn't check anything off to keep it that way...what have I done? How can I restore it to its normal view? I want to get it back to where the whole white page of paper appears there. I have rebooted to to avail.

So I downloaded the free trial of Office 365 directly from Microsoft, and have a couple issues:

WORD
When I try to open a file from Windows Explorer, a Window opens up asking me which program I want to use to open the file. None of the choices is the Word program that came with the Office 365.
Even stranger, I create a Word document and save it to my computer, when I try to open that same file the same window pops up
The only way I can open a file is to open the Word program and open the file from there.

EXCEL
When I try to open an Excel file from Windows Explorer, nothing happens. Same as above, the only way I can open a file is when I open Excel and open the file from Excel.

Can anyone help decipher whats going on here?

Yes, you need to associate the Docx and XLS extensions with the correct program.
I can't remember off the top of my head how to do it, and it is different for different versions of Windows.

they need it if they are receiving office 2010 documents and have office 2003 or office 2007

If they do not want to install it then you must save the file for the 2003 format as you see in the pic below

A:Unable to open IE, Chrome, Outlook, Word etc...after running ComboFix

I ran ComboFix and it executed smoothly without any warnings.
However, when I am trying to open IE, Chrome, any Document, Outlook etc...none is opening.
Hello and Welcome -
Please fully read:: ComboFix usage, Questions, Help - Look here > http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic273628.html
What was your reason for running the program ? Have you rebooted the computer fully since you ran ComboFix ?
Was your computer infected with Malware of some kind, or were you just running this as a trial ?
Please Note - There is no warranty implied with the program, and it is provided As Is only -
 
After you reboot are these the listed problems (above) given to you, and no other directions ?
Please read and follow all links in the document above, and then please reply with your current problems -
 
Thank You -

Problem started "mid September I believe".

I purchased my laptop few years back, Never had any problems opening my docs. Thought i solved this with system restore to earlier date. this worked and i was able to open those files. I now no longer can use system restore because it wont go back to an early enough date. not sure but i think problem came from automatic up-date. I am a computer idiot. If someone out there could give me a step by step way to solve this I would be a more enlightened computer user who is happy once again!

Does anybody know of any file converters out there (free if possible) that can convert ClarisWorks files to Office Word files? I have a lot of old documents that I wish to convert.

Thanks

When I try to save a document in Word Documents, Windows 10 tells me I cannot save in that category, I must save it in a folder. I need to save in Word. How can I fix that?

A:How to save documents to Word Documents in Windows 10?

I'm not understanding you. Whenever you save a document it always goes into a folder somewhere - there is nowhere else it can go. It can go into a folder named "Word Documents" or "Word" if you wish, but otherwise I don't get what you mean by saving it in Word.Excuse me if I'm somehow missing something basic here - it can happen LOL.EDIT: Maybe it's some Windows 10 thing I've not run into.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

I am using Word 2013 on my laptop. Windows 8 was operating system. Recently upgraded to Windows 10. When I save Word documents now, they are saved as Wordpad documents. (.xml files) Wordpad does not recommend some of the Word formatting and alters the documents.

How do I correct this? I want the save as Word documents, as I did in the past.

Thank you.

A:word documents saved as wordpad documents

In Word try the file tab > Options >Save. You should be able to change to a default of .docx .
