Friends, I need your help/advice.

After installing Trados version 2007, I'm having a problem
opening the saved doc files on my computer.

Suppose I save a MS Word document on my computer's
desktop. When I try to open it by clicking on it, I get the
message that the Word encountered a problem and thus
it has to close it (I cannot open the file). However, when
I first open a blank/new document, and then click on those
saved files, I can open them. This is rather an indirect and
peculiar way of opening the file I want to work on.

Anyone comprehend how to fix the problem? Why has this

try deleting your May 19, 2008

Find the "" file in path "[C:] - Documents and Settings - [user] - Application Data - Microsoft - Templates" (I write dashes instead of backslashes here); you have to set "Show hidden files and folders" and unclick "Hide protected operating system files" in Explorer menu "Tools" - "Folder Options", tab "View" (if you unclick "Hide extensions for known file types" it will not hurt either).
