I have a really strange problem. I cannot open Word files from Total Commander, an email or anywhere else on my computer when Trados is open. If I close Trados, all the Word files that I have been trying to open will open.

I have Studio 2015, Windows 10 (was also a problem in Windows 8) and Office 2013.

(Also, I cannot open Excel files at all. It just opens Excel, but not the file. But maybe that is another problem. It doesn't seem to be related to Studio).

Hope anyone can help.

Looks like an issue regarding computer hardware instead of software

You need to upgrade your computer.
