Problem opening Word documents


Recommended Posts

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?

First, right-click the Word file that you have problems with, and click "Property". Click "Unblock", when done, click"OK". (Note: a properly-working Word file does not have an "Unblock" button displayed). Next, you should be able to open this file without further problems.
