The most common work around I have seen is have word open and then launch the file. 2007 files are not one file, but a bunch of files. In fact if you change its extension to zip, you can open it via zip to see all sort of files. 2007 some time does not do a cleanly unloads and you get all sort of issue.

I have solved the problem, I had AVG anti virus on my pc which was causing conflict with widows 2007. After i removed it I was able to open all my files.
