My operating system is '98se. I'm using Office 2000 -- in particular Excel and Word. While doing some work activity -- I needed to lower the checks for activeX components. While going to the www.msn.com site there were two viruses that downloaded... wasn't really paying attention to note the names.
When opening an XLS spreadsheet/workbook -- excel returns 'it is an invalid format'. When opening a word document I get 'document is unavailable'. Sounds like the header is changing somehow. They both let me create new documents and save them.
If this sounds familiar -- let me know -- and, I can do some research on how to remove what happened.
thanks, ahead of time!!!!
