    Suddenly clicking on a .doc file results in Word reporting that for security reasons it cannot open .doc files.

    I guess that's one way to ensure security.

    Yes, I've installed all of the updaters.

    It appears that the document itself was corrupt, (caused by Word crashing a short while ago while opening it). When I restored the document to yesterday's version using Time Machine and double-clicked it, it opened just fine.

    What a great product...
