corrupt .doc files

Morning all, I often get .doc files from people that contain funnies etc, but when I open them, there is at the beginning, a series of 'y's or/and numbers, then the funny, followed by more letters and/or numbers. I have to go out now for a couple of hrs, but thank you in advance of any ideas as to how to correct this issue.

Just a thought - are you all running the same version of Word? If not, download the Office compatibility software from MS

Thank you onthelimit1, but my wife recieves the same funnies as I do and she has no problem when she opens them, which leads me to think the problem lies with my pc. I have done a virus scan as well as adaware/spyware scans, so the pc is clean. BTW, my pc is a HP Pavilion running Win 7 Home.
