Created a series of Word docs under Office2000/Win2000 and tried to transfer to WinXP Professional and all I see are squares across page. Tried changing to WordPad and NotePad with similar results. Have a desktop with WinXP Professional and laptop with WinXP Home and can't get either to read files. Have the original Win2000 OS disk but am afraid to screw up system. Files are important archivals and I want to retain them.
