MODS, feel free to move post. I just don't know where else to put it. I'm having a serious problem with saving any documents composed in MS Word. When I save as a Word doc, it will randomly save into Wordpad instead. I haven't a clue why. If I compose something in Word, I don't want it saved in Wordpad, cause it doesn't come out right. WTF, this is driving me nuts. I'm running Word 2003/winXP pro serv pac 2 Any hints?
