    Default Help with winword.exe default reqd

    Hi, my system is WVista upgraded to Microsoft Office 2010. No issues with word at all (even now for word documents) until I joined uni and needed to download files - now its a nightmare... cannot view downloaded files.

    I have been into file association, I can see .doc/html and some others opening in microsoft office by default which is doing nothing and giving me a pop up warning box 'win34' message. If I change the default program and find winword.exe (finding no problem in office14) I ask it to open it and it just ignores request and reverts back to file association screen.

    I have unticked the default box - using 'open with' on a file, asked to use winword.exe as the default file - same again - ignores request.

    Can anyone help with solution as need to open important files and cant.

    Thank you.
