you might try changing their file types/extension to open with office 2007 instead of the older office version.

in associating the older file types with the newer office version the files won't be automatically converted.

but at least when you see them in the explorer and click on them, they'll open with your newer office version.

Follow steps below:

Right-click on a file with the extension whose association must be changed, then click Open With

In the dialog box opened, choose the program with which the extension must be open (or

Browse to select a program of your choice).

Check the option Always uses the selected program to open this kind of file and then confirm by clicking on OK.
