RE: issues with opening or saving any kind of document
Possibly restarting your computer into Safe Mode (Press F8 before Windows
boots, and log into an administrator account in safe mode), may solve the
problem. Sometimes leaving the computer running for long periods of time
(days) without restarting or shutting down, can make windows act strangly.
Even if the computer is shut down, and restarted on a regular basis, these
problems can persist, until booted into safe mode, which loads only basic
windows drivers that is needed to load windows.
I hope this helps, and good luck.
