Error Message with MS Word 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I click on a Word File I get a pop up window saying,

    "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes on this computer?"

    Then it shows MS Word

    When I click yes I get "There was a problem sending the command to the program". 

    Word then opens but NOT the file.

    I have uninstalled and re-installed WORD but have been unsuccessful. Can anyone help?

  • Exit Word. Then hold the Windows logo key as you press R; in the Run dialog, type winword /r and press Enter. The procedure should repair the file associations. If it still doesn’t work, take a look at http://www.gmayor.com/document_not_found.htm (even if you don’t see the exact same error messages).
