filename.doc is blocked from opening in this version
I updated my Office for Mac software about a week ago, and now I can't open Word downloads from emails or online. It seems to be I can't open ANY Word downloads though, not just older ones.
I tried the workaround options but they didn't work, and I don't know how to get my old version of Office back!
My Mac is quite old (OS X 10.5.8).
Also the search function on my Entourage doesn't work now either?
WAAH I want my old Office back!
Please help Thanks!

What version/year of Microsoft Office do you have currently installed? 2004, or 2008? Is it fully up to date? When you select Check for Updates from the help menu, are any updates listed? Have you tried saving the document to the computer and then trying to open it?

I'm running Word 2008 version 12.2.3
I ran Mackeeper and it updated it, and since then I haven't been able to open any downloaded files.
I've just discovered that other people can't open my Word attachments I send them either.
Yes, I can't save any files to my computer either

Some remove files/folders or unused languages or architectures, which does nothing more than free up some drive space, with the risk of deleting something important in the process. These apps will not make your Mac run faster or more efficiently, since having stuff stored on a drive does not impact performance, unless you're running out of drive space.
Some of these apps delete caches, which can hurt performance, rather than help it, since more system resources are used and performance suffers while each cache is being rebuilt. Caches exist to improve performance, so deleting them isn't advisable in most cases.
Many of the tasks performed by these apps should only be done selectively to troubleshoot specific problems, not en masse as routine maintenance.
Mac OS X does a good job of taking care of itself, without the need for 3rd party software. Among other things, it has its own maintenance scripts that run silently in the background on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, without user intervention.
