Try one or both of these:
Right click on the icon and select 'Open'.
Right click on the icon and select 'Open With" and select Word or Word 2010 from the list. If you also check off "Always use this program" and it works, you have fixed the problem since it may have been trying to open it with another program and it could not. Now you have designated the default program for that file type (.doc or .docx).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Unfortunately this doesn't work-when I do what you suggest I just get the rotating blue circle as if something is happening and then it disappears and I am left looking at the list of documents again-any other ideas please?

You might try re-installing Word, perhaps there is a corrupt registry entry.
