    I would start by installing the Office 2007 Service Packs. Present level is Service Pack for Office 2007.

    Next would be the Office compatibility pack.

    Final thing would be to check file associations. Not sure where these are in Windows 8.
    In Windows 7, you open Control Panel and select Default Programs. Then, choose either Set default programs or Associate a file type, and select the program and action for each file type.
