I am running MS Office 2007 on Vista and have had no problems until a couple of weeks ago.

The problem occurs in Word 2007 only. When I try to open a document by double-clicking on it, Word will open, but the file will not. Only if I try opening the file by going through Word -->Open-->xyz.doc(x) will the file actually open in Word. This happens regardless of the kind of Word document I am trying to open.

I have verified that Word is the default program set up to open all .doc & .docx files. I have even reinstalled Office 2007 but am still having the same issue. All other Office 2007 programs & files work fine.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

jason

I have had similar problems. It happens intermittently and the workaround is obvious though a bit of a hassel, but i have not been able to pin down the problem. If i figure it out i'll post the solution.

I solved a similar problem, only it was my xyz.xlsx files that would not open by double-clicking on it. I opend config to my Norman virus control, and disabeled the realtime search in files on network stations. Then my problem was gone.
