Unable to open files in Win 7 Word 2010 after clean install.

Q: Unable to open files in Win 7 Word 2010 after clean install.

I have a list of doc's on my Word 2010 that I can't open. When I click on these files I get a error window that tells me to (Check file permissions) or (Open with text recovery converter). Where do I find the Text Converter or open and repair feature. I am running Win. 7 Pro 64 bit and Word 2010.
I did a clean install and took my system back to Factory settings, The only files that I can open are some that I created after the clean install. Any help will greatly appreciated. Thanks

Preferred Solution: Unable to open files in Win 7 Word 2010 after clean install.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Problem started "mid September I believe".

I purchased my laptop few years back, Never had any problems opening my docs. Thought i solved this with system restore to earlier date. this worked and i was able to open those files. I now no longer can use system restore because it wont go back to an early enough date. not sure but i think problem came from automatic up-date. I am a computer idiot. If someone out there could give me a step by step way to solve this I would be a more enlightened computer user who is happy once again!

I changed from Verizon to Comcast yesterday 06/16/2017. Today when I tried to open a Word Document it would not open. A box showed the following " Microsoft Word Starter 2010 cannot be opened, try again or repair the product in Control Panel" I don't know if this is just a coincidence or if it had something to do with changeover? I tried System Restoration without success and am at a standstill. I tried calling Comcast but they were not able to help me. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. I presently have Microsoft 7 32gb.

I acquired the Win 7 antivirus 2012 virus/trojan/annoyance. I went into safe mode with networking, did a full scan with my antivirus prog (Vipre). It found and removed Trojan.Win32.Generic.pak!cobra which included a temp file in AppData, and nqw.exe.
I ran rkill and malwarebytes- Malwarebytes quarrantined 2 items ( I dont know how to see what they were)

After all that, I am unable to open exe files. I get a popup box asking me to choose which program I want to use to open the program. I CAN right click everything and run as administrator.

I do not know if it is relevant, but about a month ago I had the data recovery virus. AFter getitng rid of that and using the Unhide, I was unable to open anything- I had read only permissions on everything. I created a new user and fiddled around with permissions and got everything working, but since then the computer has been real slow- there might have still been pieces of that leftover.

So I downloaded the free trial of Office 365 directly from Microsoft, and have a couple issues:

When I try to open a file from Windows Explorer, a Window opens up asking me which program I want to use to open the file. None of the choices is the Word program that came with the Office 365.
Even stranger, I create a Word document and save it to my computer, when I try to open that same file the same window pops up
The only way I can open a file is to open the Word program and open the file from there.

When I try to open an Excel file from Windows Explorer, nothing happens. Same as above, the only way I can open a file is when I open Excel and open the file from Excel.

Can anyone help decipher whats going on here?

Yes, you need to associate the Docx and XLS extensions with the correct program.

When I send some friends a password protected word document created in Word 2010 they can't open it using word 2007 which is compatible with docx by using the correct password. I have no choice but to send as a Word doc instead of docx so they can open it.

Word 2007 User 1: Word launches no password box no error messages just the blue screen.

Word 2007 User 2: Gets the error message: ?Word cannot open this file . The encryption type used is not available. Contact the author of the file. More encryption types are available in the High Encryption Pack.?

Therefore I suspect some kind of encryption pack must be installed. I believe the user 1 has XP and user 2 has Win 2000 pro. are using XP. Do you know where these encryption packs are available? The other possibility might be for me to reduce the encription level when I create a password protected docx but I have no idea how to do that.

Is there a solution to this problem?

Kind Regards

I have tried everything I know to get this to work but nothing seems to work.

I have Windows 7, and installed Office 2010 but when I try to open a file.docx file it opens in the old Word 2002 and not Word 2010.

I have right cliked the file and many other files and looked for Word 2010 but it is not there to select. Only the old Word 2002.

I have looked in control panel and looked at the file associations and there too I can not find Word 2010 when I try to alter the association of docx.

The only way I can open the file in Word 2010 is the long way and scrolling through each folder until I find the file I want to print or alter.

Any ideas anyone ?

When I run the mouse over the task bar for Word, I can see the correct document or at least a small version of it. However, clicking on it won't display the document so that I can edit it.

This past week was looking for a Word doc which I had updated in Mar 2014. Found it in Word, clicked Open and got an error message that it couldn't be opened as it was corrupted. I clicked on Ok, which closed it, thinking I could find it again when I found something on web which explained what to do. (Never encountered this before). Went back in Word today to find it and searched but it is not there. Unfortunately, had no backup of it. I followed some threads and looked for it in Recycle Bin, Local->MS->Office-> Unsaved Files and a few other threads found on the web, but still not able to find it.

Any other ideas, would appreciate it. Or, if I need to supply any more info, let me know.

Hello, I am a consultant in central Texas and I have a customer that does not recall the chronology of how he got into this situation but basically, I'll attempt to explain. He has Word 2000 installed on an XP Pro machine. He wants to do a mailing that 2000 is unable to handle. We found that 97 will do the desired process with no problem. I tried to install Word 97 to his computer but the setup program indicates that 97 is already on the machine. There is no trace of Word 97 that I can find. The customer thinks that he has vacillated between 97 and 2000 at least twice. I just want both on this machine at the same time. I could uninstall both and then reinstall 2000 then 97 and I think it will work but I was hoping to avoid the uninstalls. Any ideas?

A:Unable to install Word 97 on Word 2000 machine

It sounds like Uncle Bill left some fragments in the registry (or, hopefully, just a file used to flag Word'97's presence).

Hopefully you are using "My Documents" to save everything created in MSWord (either version); that will make it pretty easy to back up the files you don't want to take chances on. Burn a couple CDs or DVDs as needed/if available.

Check the Add/Delete Programs- to see which version/s are installed. I would uninstall each one- re-starting the computer between uninstalls.

With operating systems it makes a difference in which order they are installed; I would follow the same rule for the same reasons--- install the older one first (Word 97). Paranoia makes me want to shut down & reboot between versions. Then install Word 2000.

Good luck.

After recent full system recovery caused by one or more virus, I am unable to re-install Microsoft Word or Word Perfect on my Compaq Presario, which has Windows XP. Microsoft Word will sometimes start the process but then just stops, giving no indication of what steps to take next or what the problem is. Word Perfect seems to start the process each time but then gets hung up with updating what it describes as the SHFolder.dll. Have waited as long as 20 minutes for this update. The screen does show activity but it just never seems to get done. I cannot take the installation process past that point.

Any suggestions on how I can correct or cure this problem?

A:Unable to install either Microsoft Word or Word Perfect

Check here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q303437/ for some help - probably the .dll is either corrupt or the path not recognized. Depending on whether or not this page helps, either fix it with that or lookup SHFolder.dll. on the net and download a new copy from somewhere like http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?shfolder and install it.

hey guys, i'm wanting to try out the new Beta and i downloaded the install file, but it says i need 1gb of free space, but i don't because the partition i have installed windows is on is very small. is there any way around this? i can't make that much space without doing a re-install of windows. it doesn't give me the choice of where i want to install it.


A:How to install Word 2010?

You have just found out the NUMBER 1 reason for NOT using a small partition.

As for Office 2010, I would NOT install it unless you have a spare machine that will not be affected by the use of it. If you set up your email using Outlook 2010, you MAY not get back to the pst file using 2003 or 2007. This and many other issues that arise when when using BETA software.

I have a user who has been using Word 2010 for a couple of weeks with no issues until this morning where she is no longer able to open word documents using either File-Open, Open on the quick access toolbar or CTRL O.

At present if you go to the file tab and select open - it goes back to the home tab but does not display the open file dialog box.

You can select an item from the recent file list and this will open, you can select a file in windows explorer and double click and it will open so the association is OK. But I cannot get the open dialog to appear in word.

Excel and other office programs are working fine it is only Word.

The user is using Windows 7, Microsoft office 2010 standard.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Office software but the problem has persisted.

I have been unable to 'google' my way through this one, so hopefully someone here can suggest a solution.

I had to do a clean install of Win 7, and then, of course, Office 2010.

I backed up my outlook.pst and still have it.
I started Outlook, and did an "import" from my saved file into a new/blank outlook.pst file.
The import process did NOT include the email account set ups, signatures and perhaps some other stuff I haven't found yet.

It also failed to import a couple (at least 2) personal folders. But that is not critical.

When I look at my folders, on the left, I see:
- a primary folder (section) called "Outlook" AND another primary folder (section) called "Personal Folders"
- Under each section, I see my "saved folders"; they appear to be duplicates
- Under each section, I see a "Calendar"; they appear to be duplicates
- Same for Contacts They have the same number of items.

What is the difference in the folders under "Outlook" and "Personal Folders"?
I feel I should delete one or the other. I certainly do not need 2 sets of "saved folders"!


A:Office 2010 clean install - questions about Outlook folders

You will probably have to set up your email accounts again. this can be done either from within Outlook or open Control Panel, select the Mail (Microsoft Outlook 2010) applet & this will open a box where you can select various options & one is Account Settings & another where you can change folders.

I have two questions:

1. Does anybody know why envelopes sometimes print out in double spacing even though the name and the address of the addressee in a letter may be in single spacing?

2. I can't open a webarchive file. The message I get is: THIS FILE DOES NOT HAVE A PROGRAM ASSOCIATED WITH IT FOR PERFORMING THIS ACTION. CREATE AN ASSOCIATION IN SET ASSOCIATIONS CONTROL PANEL. Where is the set associations control panel.

In past Word versions, I was simply able to highlight the file I needed and then drag it to the appropriate folder. Now, with Word 2010, I can't seem to drag any folder anywhere. I'm sure there's a way to do this but I can't figure it out.

Suddenly I have a computer that won't handle and aspx operation properly. A website has a button you click to generate a report, in word doc form. But now instead of opening as a word doc, you're prompted to open or save a .aspx file. The aspx file opens in notepad, but that's part of the problem, because it should be creating and opening a *.docx file not an *docx.aspx file.

This works fine on other computers, and worked fine on this computer until a few days ago.

I have tried:
Mucking around with different security settings in IE,
Looked at file extensions, tried setting them to open aspx with word or with IE,
Tried the aspx file association reg fix on this site.
Tried repairing office
Tried sfc /scannow (found no integrity violations)

Nothing has worked.

I seem to recall figuring this out before, but I can't remember what I did.

I finally upgraded from MS Office 2002 to Office 2010, and all of my Word documents were automatically converted to wps files. In addition, when I download Word documents not created in Word 2010, they default to wps files. I can work around the problem manually to pull up older Word files in new Word, but it's incredibly annoying that any workaround is necessary. (Incidentally, when I try using the "open as" box with downloaded files, Word 2010 does not appear as one of the options.) I've been using Word for many years and have no need or desire to switch to MS Works. Please advise!

Hi Denise, welcome to the forum.

This might do the trick - please let us know how you get on:
How to open a Works 6.0, a Works 7.0, a Works 8.0, or a Works 9.0 word processing document in Word

Method 2: If you do not have Microsoft Works installed on your computer

If you have a Works document (.wps) that you want to open and you do not have Works installed, you can still use Word to open the file. To do this, first use the Works 6-9 Converter in Word and then open the document directly in Word. Step 1: Download the Works 6-9 Converter

If you have previously installed Works on the same computer on which Word is installed, the Works 6-9 Converter is already installed and you can go on to step 2: "Open the Works document in Word."

If you have not previously installed Works on your computer, you must download the Works 6-9 Converter in order to open the document in Word. To download the Works 6-9 Converter, follow these steps:If it is open, close Microsoft Word.

In your Web browser, visit the following Microsoft Web site: Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Microsoft Works 6
Click Download. The File Download dialog box opens.
In the File Download dialog box, click Save file.
Double-click the saved file to start the Works 6-9 Converter installer.

i also tried going to control panel - default programs - set associations any help would be appreciated.

Is it possible to change the default for this message box so that next time I hit enter without reading what the message says I don't lose my work?

I just did this rather foolishly and it would be nice if the default was to save the recovered files not to delete them.

A:Default for deleting recovered files in Word 2010

Hi Adam,

Hope all is well!

I do not think there is Adam I am afraid, although you can set it save automatic recovery information every X amount of minutes.

If you go to File > options > safe > then look at the Auto recover tick boxs.

Also you should be able to go find the recovery information and open a repair file under your username and app data.

I know this does not directly fix your issue but the best work around it to make you set your auto recovery to a fairly low number.

A Word document suddenly changes into a 'read only' file which cannot be saved or deleted. I have 'saved' under different file names as instructed, but as a result I now have 10 versions of the document, 9 of which I don't want! The 'Help' file says go to 'Properties' and untick the 'read only' box. The boxes aren't ticked, so I still cannot delete. How do I delete these files?

Anybody, help! Quite desperate as this is affecting my work.

Sometime ago, I installed AGV as there seemed to be lil bugs in my comp that Norton could not get. AGV managed to detect and delete these bugs, but not all problems were solved. Norton's subscription was up and I was still quite peeved about Norton's inability to help...so I uninstalled it. Since then, there were more problems...

1) I'm unable to run help from Start...or msconfig from Start/Run or system restore. The error message is that it can't find the file. Even when I go to explorer to double-click the file directly, it still won't run.

2) I'm unable to open ANY file with MS word or powerpoint. It would say that the file is unavailable. It would also prompt me to replace existing normal.dot file. I'm unable to do the detect and repair, it would say error 1706...I do not have the installation CD with me anymore!

3) I'm unable to run any online virus scan (Trend, Panda...) even after I made changes to the security settings to allow for ActiveX.

4) I'm tried to reinstall Norton, but it can't run. It says 'CFGWIZ.EXE - Unable to locate component. . . . cctrust.dll was not found.'

I do run Spybot, Adaware, AGV, Winaso regularly.

Please help...thanks!
