docx document and wordpad problem
by ojdl - 5/6/13 3:32 PM
My desktop is Pentium 4 with windows xp. I received documents by email in docx format & when i attempt to open them, my computer chooses wordpad. When the documents open, it looks like jibberish (foreign) or something. I checked my program files but I don't see microsoft word or wordpad but wordpad is under accessories list in programs on the start tab. I tried nero picture viewer and adobe reader but nothing will open the docx file. I do have a microsoft office 2007 disc. Should I install it and do I have to delete anything first? If open the email & docx files on my windows 7 computer, it opens with wordpad & I can copy, paste, & copy to the xp computer & it opens just fine with word pad. HELP!!!
