Here's somthing that has always puzzled me. In my temp folder I'll have files that pop up from time to time. Their set to open with word, I don't know why. But when I double click on them, word tries to open them but all it can do is produce a black blank page. Then a box pops up that says these mysterious words!

The document name or path is not valid. Try these suggestions.

*Check the file permission for the document or drive.
* Use the file open dialog box to locate the document.

(c:\Docume~1\dad\Locals~1\...\~DF5389.tmp)


But I don't know how to do any of that! Could this be the Soviet Union spying on me? LOL

What should I do, we're so bogged down in Iraq? LOL

And I know some where on Bleepingcomputer I saw a tool for free that let you unlock files that won't unlock, but I can't find it again! Does anyone know the tool I'm talking about and where I can go download it from?

THank you!

Seems like a temporary file loaded when you open up word, and you haven't done anything.
