    yes, there is a way to open your files. Right click on the document, select
    open with and choose notepad. it wont have the same formating but you can
    still edit it.

    What you are seeing is all of the document format info..

    Download and run Open Office 2.2.. this will enable you to pick up on Word
    files, but probably not Word 2007 files..

    Word Viewer 2003 (for viewing, not editing):
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    Then install the Compatibility Pack to see .docx files.
