    Default MS Office issue

    Running Windows XP and Office 2003. got a virus and finally cleaned it out. Did a System restore to 12/10/2013. System is working well now. Any office document created after 12/10/2013 opens with no problem. Any document created before 12/10/2013 will not open. I get a windows dialog pane that asks me to select a text encoding that makes my document readable. Nothing makes it readable. Have tried Open Office, copying to new blank page, emailing and saving to backup hard drive. Help Please !!

    One workaround that may help you is:
    Reset the date on PC to before 12/10/2013 and then open the document in Word.
    I am sure that will open.
    Then copy the contents of those files and make a bew document.
    That will solve the problem.
