Compatability Pack Question

Hi, I use Windows XP/Microsoft 2003.  I down loaded a Compatibility Pack 2007 some time back but I received some documents yesterday with extensions like doc,Part 1 and a Power Point document with a comma extension instead of the dot.  Can someone tell me what's going on?  What do I need to open these documents.?

The compatability pack has been revised over time. That is the download today is not what you downloaded some time back. The first thing I would try is to get the newest compatability pack from Microsoft (popular downloads) and reapply it. It lives in Add/Remove programs, so you might wish to download, uninstall the current, restart, and now install the new one. ... Thinkpads_User

Did you try to just rename those files to a normal name (what they should be such as powerpoint.ppt)
