Ok, so here is the situation. I was working on a script tonight that I opened up as an attachment from an email. As I finished it up, I clicked save, or at least I though I did. Then I went ahead and closed Microsoft Word. There was no dialog box prompting me to save changes or anything, it just closed. Now, I cannot find the file whatsoever. I have searched under recent documents, temporary internet files, and I searched for .tmp files and .asd files as well. I did find one .tmp file that was created around the same time that I lost my document. I have tried to open it up in Word and it prompts me to convert file from a variety of formats, including plain text, encoding text, rtf, etc. I am completely stuck and do not know what to do. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am running XP PRO with SP2. My notebook came preinstalled with Microsoft Word 2002, so I have no backup installation cd. I have been told that the file WORDRET.MSI is the installation file, but I cannot find that file anywhere on my hard drive.
