Here is what I would do:

Has these Docs opened okay on my machine recently? If so, and Word's restore failed, I would do a system restore back to a date previous to my problem

See, whether you realize it or not, M$ is all the time updating something, or you have added a program

(System restore does NOT mess with your documents)

By the way, have you noticed this problem spreading to other Word Docs? If so, then this would be another reason to do a System Restore, particularly if you trust your anti-virus program
