I need to know if there are any free programs I can download to view+print forms that are sent to my email with a word or doc as an attachment. As far as I can figure, I don't have this installed on my pc. I am unable to read these types of files.

I do have Foxit Reader, but it does not read those either.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.And, does it matter which version of Word(free) to use?
Thanks

Install Microsoft Office 2007. I don't think that there is a problem in new version of Ms 07. Try it out. If that problem occurs than let me know.

Or, you don't even need to download anything. Google Docs or Zoho will work.

Thanks for all the options. I no absolutely nothing about Word documents. Sometimes I get applications emailed to me that require to be filled out. That openoffice.org looks interesting+it states it's "beginner" friendly. Are these types of programs really "novice" friendly?
Basically I need a program that will let me view a document, but I might also like to be able to make lists,charts,etc.

Can you give me a little bit more info on openoffice?
Thank you

Think of OpenOffice as a more robust version, of MS Office.
