Hi,

'.docx' files aren't associated with any program eventhough wod 2007 is installed.

When I try open them, it asks me to find a suitable program to open them, I know where word 2007 is installed but I can't get it to associate '.docx' files with word 2007.

I am able to open '.docx. files by starting word 2007 and then opening them through it but this is a bit inconvient.

Any help would be much appreciated

IS there a box on the very bottom of that Window always use this program for this filetype. If so check it and then use Winword.exe.
