I have uninstalled Office 2010 on my new laptop as all my documents

Resolved Question:

I have uninstalled Office 2010 on my new laptop as all my documents are in 2007 and I have installed my copy of 2007. On first doing this I opened my files OK but now I can't open them. 1st I get a dialogue box asking if I want to allow the programme to change my computer and then I get another box sayiong there was a problem sending the command to the programme. Might I have left some 2010 components on my computer accidentally? If not, why won't 2007 work now? I can open all my documents on my daughter's computer which also has 2007

Customer:

I presume I just run this

Nimman :

Save it on desktop and Run it

Nimman :

Remove the 2010 fix , Download it again and Run it

Right click on it and Select Run as Administrator .

Customer:

Right click on what? I only have your screen here

Right click on the Fix which you have downloaded.

But where is it? When I clicked on your shortcut a box came up and I just pressed run. I didn't save it anywhere. How do I save it?
