I have a fresh install of Win 7 and MS Office 2010. When I try to open an MS Word document that has been sent as an attachment in Outlook 2010 it will not open and I get the error message " Word experienced an error trying to open the file" and it goes on to give suggestions of what to try. I have tried using the repair option with no luck and I have tried .doc and .docx files and neither open. I have sent the same files to my office computer that does open them properly so I don't think the file is really corrupt. I have tried opening the files emulating various versions of Word with no luck. It mentioned using a Text converter but I haven't been able to locate this option for Word 2010. I just tried to open an Excel file too and it also gave a file corrupt cannot open error. I have also tried repairing my Office installation and nothing changed. Very frustrating....HELP!
