    I use Office 2000. I think the latest big patch windows sent out. This was the one dealing with the Metafile Vulnerablity. Whenever, i click on a microsoft word document I get Windows Fax and Image viewer. The only way i can get it to open in word is to use this route. Right click the file>click on open with<choose Microsoft Word. This is just really annoying and i believe its related to the patch. Thanks in advance

    Choose open with \ choose a program, select word and check the box to always use this program. See attachment.

    If you right click on a .doc file and select Properties > Change (application to open with) is Microsoft Word in the list? If it is, select that and check "always use".

    If you need to browse to it, look for winword.exe in the Program Files\Microsoft Office folder or subfolder.
