How to open .docx files

  bernvs 09:26 18 Sep 13

Until recently I could open email text files which would use my Microsoft Word program from Office 97 which I have used for years. Recently I updated my Tuneup Utilities to 2014. Now when I try to open .docx files, the screen refers me to offers to buy Microsoft Office 2010. How can get around this?

You could try downloading the Microsoft Office Compatibility pack.
