Windows 7 has both Wordpad and Notepad, it should be able to open it.

You can try downloading Openoffice.org and installing it, then try right clicking on the file, using 'open with' option and selecting 'openoffice writer' (do not check off 'always open with...'). If it is able to open it then you can choose 'save as' and select the file type to save it as.

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

You must be talking about microsoft word documents and not text files.

I tried open office and hated it...you may want to try google docs, it will allow you to open the documents and also edit them...much easier IMO....if you don't have a gmail address, you may have to open one to use google docs....it's up to you. Good Luck
