    You might open a link file instead of opening original file and probably the original file moved to another location by any means. Or check the actual location if the file exists there and it seems that it is not created by any virus, because it is simply a word file.

    Try opening Word, go to file then click recent. See if your file is in that list.

    This error occurs when you are trying to open a file whose 8.3 filename contains a space. You have to remove that space to fix the problem.

    Right click on the file -> click rename -> type new name -> press enter.

    What do you mean by 8.3 file name? Most of my file names have a space and work fine. I have not had any issues. If the space was invalid, Word would not let you save the file with an invalid name.
