So I installed Office 2010, and removed Office 2007 from my computer (I had lost the product key, so it was in view-only mode, it's a long story) - obviously, a bad move. Now I can't open the 2007 files people are sending me. Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks!

I suggest you reinstall Office 2010. It should not have a problem with docx files. Removing 2007 after you installed 2010 may have changed the file associations.
