I'm low tech & I must have done something.  I was just trying to open one of my MSWord 2003 documents off my desktop like I have a million times.  Now I get a red circle with a white "X" & the message:  "Windows cannot find 'C:\Sally\Desktop\Important Info.doc'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."


I did not type the name...I just double clicked like always.  I tried to restart computer but that didn't help either.  I tried to read from the forums but I don't even know what they are talking about.


Can someone help me?

Hello sfmfreetwn,


Does it happen with every word document on the desktop or just that one document  in particular ?


Can you create a test document save it to the desktop an open it  without error.
