My word document transformed to symbols.

Hello, all. I ran a search, but could not find this particular problem previously discussed.
OS: Windows XP
Situation:I typed a word document, saved it successfully, made edits,resaved, etc. I attempted to print it, and when I did, it printed as a page of weird symbols. I thought the printer was offline, did a reboot. When I accessed my document again, it was now a whole page of symbols.
It is saved appropriately as a .doc file; luckily, I had sent an attachment to my lap top which sent successfully so I do have a "clean" copy. the problem is, several of my word documents now appear as a page of symbols.
I am running a virus scan as we speak, but in the meantime any hints? Thank you in advance.
