Hi, I have recently re installed XP to my pc,but prior to doing it,I backed up my files onto a cd via NERO.Now I have re established all of my files and folders except for three which were written in Wordpad,I get a message saying System cannot read word 6, I would like to regain the wordpad data as it is important. Can I install a word program to enable the OS to read the data. I had a dual boot system 98 and Xp but I remember backing up Xp files. :help: :(
