    All of a sudden i cannot open my microsoft office word file.I've always saved it to my USB and suddenly a few files disappeared and one of the main one cannot be opened.

    It says:

    "Word experienced an error trying to open the file.
    Try these suggestions.
    *Check the file permissions for the document or drive.
    *Make sure there is sufficient free memory and disk space.
    *Open the file with the Text Recovery converter."

    Sometimes it says in the MS Office Word:

    "This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them."

    Please help.

    hi bock_cs,

    sorry to say, but that sounds like your usb stick is faulty.

    try copying the files via explorer to your hard drive and opening them there.

    Your missing files are likely lost, so you need to revert to a backup - you do have a backup don't you!
