Hi ALL Happy BleepingComputer users,

When surfing the net in order to find info about a programma, I met this site. I think this is a very good information and knowledge database which will keep on growing as more and more people start using it.
I am a Dutchman ( 56 Years young) and will certainly use this website. For sure when I encounter strange programms on my computer.

In te same time ( together with this introduction) I would like to raise q question:

My Internet browser ( v7, and I am running WinXP) is not opening word within word, but doing it with Open Ofice in stead. On the MS internet site is an article how to change it bij changing the registry. However If I look with regedit, it all looks different from the explanation in the MS description.
Probably there is one amongst you all, who has solved this already once on his computer, and may give me the way to do so.

The solution may be somewhat more simple. Check to see whether the default program for opening .doc files is Word or OO.o. You may post about this problem in the Webbrowsing/internet application forum if you need further help.
