Hello Stephen! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Is it a particular cd-rom disk? Or all cd-rom disks cannot be opened on your computer?

Can we do a remote support session, so we can chat, and I will be able to help you directly?

Sure, I think I mean Microsoft not Windows.

Would need to check. Not sure how but I can play picture and the files on the CD rom in question are probably word files. I am using an older 2006 version and would like to replace it anyway. Not sure if there an expiry date on my office 2010 but was hoping you can tell me. The CD player is working.

We can do a remote session.

Hi, I am unable to open some of my files. I don't know how to make Microsoft word as my default .

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 2 years ago.
Hi Stephen,

Is there any error or message?

What are the types of these files, such as word documents, pdf files, etc.?

Please let me know. Thank you
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

There was an error message but I changed the default to wordpad. Now they just open with a script.

They were word documents.

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 2 years ago.
Can you right-click on a file, then click on Open With..., then select Microsoft Word...?

Can you right-click on a file, then click on Properties, then click on Change..., then select Microsoft Word..., then click OK, OK, and check?

Thank you
