Please request Mod to move this question over to Word TA or Office TA.

Tell us more about where you get your email ie in Email client like Outlook or Outlook express or web based email ?

Do you just save the attachment and view the Word document or you open it from email and view it . Does it make a difference either way.

Can you create a new word document in your machine and are you viewing it fine

Does it happen only if you get word document through email or even if you copy a word document from floppy or CD, you are having issues viewing it

Is your office fully updated and if not , update it

If you receive word document from a different person in email , is it fine. If that is the case , check with the person from whom you are getting a troubled Word document.

May be the font that the sender has used is not in your system .. Check that too
