    unable to access word files

    Hi all,
    I turned on the comp this a.m. and clicked on a saved word doc and I got this message. Tried other docs but anything in word I try to open comes up with the same. Any ideas guys?

    I'm a member/contributor to a number of forums similar to this one, and there seems to be an influx of (various) problems arising with users of Office 2013 (and/or its individual component programs), not the least of them being users unable to open files (with varying errors).

    Maybe it's time has come, and it's getting increasingly incompatible with Windows 10 (even though Microsoft claim an extended support cycle to 2023)?

    Try uninstalling it (use Geek Uninstaller, RevoUninstaller freeware version) then re-install.

    Glad we could keep it this side of the Pacific ...
