Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Run a virus scan, You may have been hit with a virus, Trojan or malware. Hopefully it’s not ransomware where your files have been encrypted. There is little to be done if that is the case.  You can try making a back up of the file then rename the file extension back to .DOC or .DOCX depending on your version of Word.

    Could you please open them in Wordpad, if possible. Try once and open them one by one and save them as its default format.

    Another option might be to try Open Office, it's free and open source code that is like a free version of Microsoft's Office.
