Hmmm, perhaps do a system restore. If you have the Office disc you could also re-install. If none of these things work, I don’t know. But a system restore tend to take care of many things when you have by mistake done something like this. I have many times.

There are also other great tools to use in case your Word is forever gone. Web based Google DOcs, Zoho, Open Office etc.

Try a system restore, can’t guarantee it’ll work as it depends where the folder ended up, but it’s worth a try.

Try what the others have said. You obviously don’t have the software. You might find Microsoft Works for a cheap price; some copies include Word. Also, the word processing software in Open Office is just like Word and compatible with Word documents. It’s free—look on CNET.

Ditto on the Open Office. It does the same thing at a price that can’t be beat.

OpenOffice rules, especially for the price, but I prefer to get my software straight from the source, so I included the link.

Dang, just got here and you guys all beat me to the OpenOffice suggestion.

@GentleDiplomat You would have to backup and reinstall everything on your computer if you were to restore it. Just get OpenOffice; it has the whole suite of MSO programs’ equivalents and you can save each file on there as a MSO-format file.
