Right click on .doc file, select Properties, and go to General. Here you will see the Type of file. This you can change to word type file.

Right-click the .doc file, select 'Open with...' and a dialog box will appear with your applications listed.

Choose Microsoft Word, then place a checkmark in the box next to 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'. That will do it.

Good luck

even easier, if you have your office cds, is to do an office 'repair'. post your version and we can describe the steps for that version
