Faulty/missing Office 2007 Word files

Microsoft Office standard 2007
December 10, 2009 at 06:33:38
Specs: Windows XP
Suddenly a number of Word 97-2003 files have become unreadable on a tower and laptop running Office 2003 and Office 2007. I get a message "cannot open mswrd632.wpc."
Any advice?

Hi
I have the same problem here, running XP Office 2003.

It is the latest windows update from 10/12-2009 KB973904, this update contains a new version of mswrd632.wpc. It seems to be corrupt.

I just uninstalled the update and i am running again.

regards Steffen

thanks for this fix, we have several Word 2003 PCs that had the mswrd632.wpc corrupted by update KB973904 and uninstalling that update fixed them all. However I should note that it did not fix the same problem on a word 2007 PC which did not even have that update. I should also note that our Vista and Windows 7 PCs were never affected by this bad update at all, just XP machines. If someone has a fix for Word 2007 I'd be appreciative

Thanks for the advice. I'll try it on both machines, which have the update. Perhaps this will verify whether Word 2007 can be fixed by uninstalling the offending update.
