.docx files are Word documents created in MS Word 2007 onwards.

If the Word program is older than 2007 your files will end in .doc.

If the Word program is 2007 onwards it is the correct format but You can download a converter from Microsoft to enable you to read them in earlier versions of Word.

I don't know why your documents have suddenly changed to .docx but it would be helpful to know how the files were originally created and what format they were in.

It is a File Association problem - this should sort it for you. Documents changed to docx
