Can't open Word documents from University Website!

  Neutered 17:37 21 Nov 2004

My brother is having problems opening Word documents from his university's website. When he opens the document all he gets is a small yellow box with a scroll inside it, and a flashing cursor to the left of the box. He has no problems opening documents which have been created using Powerpoint.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Can he save them to disk and try opening? Where are they being opened from? The website?

He's trying to open them from the website. He's tried copy and paste to Word but has exactly the same results. By doing a copy to a floppy, again, no joy!

Can he right click on the link and save to disk? Then try opening locally.

Yes - Same problem I'm afraid.
