I know just the very basics about computers, and don't understand what most forums are talking about. I have been searching for the fix to this problem for a while, but can't seem to figure anything out. First off my computer is a HP pavilion g6 and is only 3 months old. It's running windows 7 64 bit. I haven't had any problem with it whatsoever until today when I tried to get a excel document from online and when I tried to open the file it said "...not a valid Win32 application". I realized that this is happening with every Microsoft office program. I've already tried repairing Microsoft office which did nothing, and since then have seen many forums say use hijack this. I downloaded that and ran in, but it said I was denied write access to host files, and to edit the host file or run as administrator. Since the run as administrator option was not there I tried to edit the host file, however the line it said to delete was not in the host file. I have no idea what to do, any help would be much appreciated.
