MS-Word files doesn't open with normal characters...
Posted on 2007-10-02
Hi friends !
I am facing a problem while opening a MS Word file (named test.doc). When I double-click and run it, MS-Word Application opens and it gives me the following message icon...
File Conversion - Test
Select the encoding that makes your document readable.
Windows Default MS-DOS Other encoding: US-ASCII
Western European (DOS)
Western European (ISO)
(This is a Combobox to select Other encoding)
In Preview, I find some rectangle boxes and not the normal alphabet characters.
When I use any of these option, I can't find the normal alphabet characters I used. It gives me rectanges and squares.
I changed the extension from *.doc to *.rtf but the problem is still there. This file doesn't seem to be infected by virus because in Virus Scan with updated Kaspersky Antivirus 6.0, it was normal and not infected.
What may be the problem and how can I get the original format ?
If you have some ideas about it, please help me.
