    If you can not open nothing, then you can open something, right?
    So what's the problem?
    What's up with the capital letters?

    Seriously, I don't get what you mean when you say a file conversion comes up.
    Just press printscreen, go to paint, paste it, then upload it here.

    Let us see the error message or what ever you get.

    I assume he is refering to the file conversion screen that comes up when Word tries to open a file in an unknown format.

    Something like this AFAIK

    I'd have said reinstall office, but since it happens to all the formats its more likely to be either a virus/malware, or the disk is corrupt.
