I'm not sure when this started as I have not used Office in a few weeks. My computer uses Windows 7. Today, I went to open a document in Word and it said "File Conversion--Select the encoding that makes your document readable." I can choose between Windows, MS-DOS, or other encoding. I went to check another file and it says "The file cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents." It also says "The file is corrupt and cannot be opened." I get the same kinds of messages with every document and with my PowerPoint as well. All of my Office is 2007.
I tried running my AVG Free and SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition and they did not pick up anything. I also tried restoring to my last update, but was told that I cannot because the file was changed in the process. I had to restore for another, unrelated issue about a week ago and it worked fine.
I'm thinking this is some kind of virus but I have no idea how to handle it since nothing is picking it up and I can't restore to even three days ago. Any help would be IMMENSELY appreciated, as I am a college student and need to be able to hand in final papers!
