I assume the "DOC" is the file extension. A .doc file is usually created by Microsoft Word. So, you should be able to open it Word....

Also keep in mind that if you don't know what it is, you shouldn't open it. Viruses come with any extension.

.doc is a MS Word file. Since this was downloaded via P2P, be sure that a Word document is what you would expect to receive and that you exercise extreme care in handling the file.

If you do not have Office installed on your computer, you can download Word Viewer2003 from Microsoft:

If you would like a free full office suite that is compatible with Microsoft Office documents, then you can download OpenOffice.org. Other applications can be found under the "Office Applications" in the BC freeware topic found here:
