I am having a very strange problem. I just updated to a Windows 7 computer, previously using Windows XP.
I installed Microsoft Word 2000, but installed Microsoft Outlook 2010. (Don’t ask me why, this is my preference).
Now, when I click on a Word document in my folder, it opens the program but does not display the document. However, if I open the Word program itself and open the document from the dropdown menu, it displays.
When I click on associate file type, 2 Word programs come up (clearly one is 2000 and one is the as-yet-uninstalled 2010). I think somewhere the file association got mixed up between the two versions of Microsoft Office.
This problem did not occur until several "Windows updates" were added.
Does anyone have any helpful suggestions to resolve this problem? P.S.—Please do not suggest updating to Word 2010. Thanks!
