Default Word files not opening


All of my Word files in My Documents are opening with a message from Adobe Reader that Adobe can't open them. I have to go back to the file, right click on it and ask it to open with Word which it will then do. If I leave that file and go back to it I have to go through the same process. Somehow I did something that caused this to start and I can't find the way to undo it. Help would be much appr`eciated.

Exit Word if it is running. Hold the Windows logo key as you press R; in the Run dialog box, type winword /r and press Enter (note the space before the slash). After the configuration has completed, see if you can double-click Word file icons. If you still can't, take a look at http://www.gmayor.com/document_not_found.htm.
