When trying to open docx files, I get "Windows Photo viewer

This answer was rated:

When trying to open docx files, I get "Windows Photo viewer cant open this picture since it doesnt support the file format etc...". I've updated all files etc with Winzip but still cant open docx files. This is a new problem - it wasnt one yesterday. How can I rectify this?
Many thanks for your help!
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
The file association has been changed which is the issue.
Can you right click on a DOCX file and select Open With, then check Always use this program and click on Word and this will now correct it.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
Let me know the results please
