The first thing to do: find out if the program is corrupted or those files are corrupted. So copy a few files to a USB-stick and see what they look like on another machine.
had a visit from Messrs Agent and Vilset which corrupted a number of Office programmes. I eventually got MS Money to run but my Word and Spreadsheet documents are in heiroglyphs. Keep getting the ASCII box but when corrected does no good. Also lost Restore Points on Sys. Restore which would have been a big help.
Any adcice as to how I could get back into my W and S/S ( and if possible old Restore Points ) would be gratefully received.
