  1. Hi,
    A friend of mine wanted to just wanted to clean everything off his hard drive and reintall WinXp. Not a techie. Thought he would be starting fresh, you know just out of the box. Now he can't view a cd with word files on it.
    He can view the files from the cd on his laptop....

    Thanks...I don't really have any more info

    You need to install MS Word again to be able to use those files. Or go to MS website and get the free Wordviewer.
