An idea would be to copy your files onto a usb stick then do a factory recovery.  If you are unable to save your files hopefully help will come!

 

If you can save your stuff then read the info below, your laptop will run like new,

Sounds like you have some file association errors.  Try this:  Click on the START button.  Select CONTROL PANEL.  Select PROGRAMS.  Pick

DEFAULT PROGRAMS, on the right panel.  Select "Make a File Type Always Open in a Specific Application,"   Wait a minute or two for things to appear on the screen -- there'll be a couple hundred entries.   Look at the right hand column, "Current Default", to see which filetypes are associated with Word, and change them as appropriate.

 

Alternately, if Windows Explorer is working for you, right click on a few things, look for  "Open with ,,," in the menu, and try to persuade some types of files that they want to open up for applications you've selected -- AVI files might go to VLC Player, that sort of thing -- rather than Word. 

 

Either tactic ought to win back a little control of your system.  And think a bit about making a good solid backup you can easily restore,  or a restore point that you can fall back on the next time you get into trouble.
