When ever I open a '.doc' document it defaults to opening in Wordpad & not
Word, so i cannot read it? Any ideas anyone?

Right click on one of your word documents then click on properties then click
on general tab and in type of file section click on change then from the list
choose Microsoft Office word and then Ok. Smile

Right-click a Word document and from Open With, select Microsoft Word.
