I have vista (home edition) on dell laptop (xps/m1330)= pre installed
i want to use my office 2003... have disks, i did install,,, all programs work except word,,,, it keeps defaulting to some strange word program or works (both unexceptable). When I want to open a word .doc it opens in strange word program, then i have to put it on the desktop convert it (saveas) .dot//// I am working from home and have to open .dot from the internet very often.
what should I do, is there local settings on my computer that I am not using??
