When I click on a Word document in any of my document folders in order to open it, I get an error message: "There was a problem sending the command to the Program" and the document will not open. I get the same message if I right click on the document and select "Open with Word". How can I fix this?

To xilolee:  Suggested fix did not work. Got error message that repair could not be completed.  Any other suggestions?

Check if the "Let me fix it myself" in "There was a problem sending the command to the program" error in Excel could be applied to word.
I.e., don't use the automatic fixit.
