Hi yesterday everything was running normally, then suddenly my Mac will no longer open .doc files in Word 2011. It will open .docx files fine, and it only seems to be Word effected (ie I can open excel sheets just fine).

This is really bad as most of my files are in .doc format so i basically cant use anything.

Can somebody help with this please?

thank you very much
