do the .doc files open in textedit app?

I had something similar happen to a lot of files I created in Appleworks a few years back. I think a simple update fixed the app. Apple technicians were able to rescue the text files.

Try opening your files in textedit, and check for updates for microsoft word. I had to update my version recently, and the update description indicated that microsoft office is a target for some people in the spread of viruses and whatnot.

Here's to hoping something like that will help fix the problem
