    not the brightest so idiots guide required plz.

    docs.google.com sign up or if you already have a gmail or google account sign in and then just upload the file and you will be able to read/edit it for free

    Depending on it's content / format could you open it with notepad (or another programme)

    tried Open Office?

    How about sending it to someone to open and take a screen dump and email that back to you?

    +1 :thumbsup: this will get it done!

    try downloading a free trial off any MS Office package?

    Just get Open Office

    [url]www.openoffice.org[/url]

    It's already been recommended but it's definitely the way to go. It's totally FREE and opens all word documents etc.

    All you have to do is download the Word viewer (assuming it is a Word document)

    tinyurl.com/2w3s6z

    There is also an Excel viewer if it is a spreadhsheet.

    I have to go out to post something important,but will try again later.
    Thanks again to all,rep will be added when i'm back on later:thumbsup:

    Open Office is much better than Google Docs. I guess it's quicker though seeing as it's online.

    I'm surprised hotukdeals are letting people talk about illegal versions though. You don't want that kind of thing going on here.

    sry link didnt show up google this Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder v2.0.1 and use it on the computer with microsft office 2003
