Word won't open in English. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I go to open up a document either word or PDF, it won't open in English. It is just a bunch of squares, triangles and letters. DOS maybe? I had 2003 and I suddenly had this problem. I thought it was 2003 so I just purchased 2010 and I am having the same problems! PLEASE HELP!

    THANK YOU!!!!

  • The Word document that won't open is probably damaged. Have you tried Open and Repair?

    Note that Word versions up to and including Word 2010 can't open any PDF files, only create them.
