Specs: Windows XP
I had microsoft word 8 on my computer. Still have disk, but won't let me reinstall, had to reformat computer, and saved documents but now can't open them. Open office doesn't work, keep getting the "choose filter" when I try to use it. Please help!

Look here for Word Viewer which should let you view, print and copy your documents.

OK, sorry, it's microsoft works 8.5, Now no error comes up at all, the installation just stops and that's it. I have tried google docs to open my documents, didn't work, and I used to always use open office, but now whenever I try to use it, the filter choice comes up and I'm not sure where to go from there. Thanks

It now allows me to install the program, but when I try to use it to open a document I get an error that says "works cannot access one or more files it needs to run the word processor. the files may have been renamed, deleted, or moved. please reinstall the program"
