Specs: Windows 7
I have Windows 7 and Microsoft Office Pro 2010. When I open and email attachment or a document from the web that is Word executable, my computer opens it in Microsoft Works. Sometimes I don't even get the dialogue window asking me what program to open it in. When it does, then I see that the default is set for Works, not Word. But when I browse for Word, I can't find it in the C drive in Microsoft Office. How do iI find the program so I can change the default?

Are you sure you have Microsoft Office/Word installed? If it's there, it should be in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12. The filename is winword.exe
