Office97 on W2k Pro

Standard W2k Pro install, then Office97 installed.
No service packs on either.
Local user is Administrator.

First problem:
Double clicking a DOC file in Explorer doesn't open the file with Word. Message suggest try opening by File, Open, which method is working.

Second problem:
Create a new file with Word, then save locally. Close then try to reopen through File, Open and get message that file is in use and make a copy ?!

Is this a normal behavior? If not what should I do?

Already tried on FAT32 and NTFS partitions.
Office was installed from original CD or by a MSI package (with Alluser parameter).
Tried to stop Opp Locks too.
Problems are still there.
I don't want to upgrade to any newer version of Office.

Thank you for help.
