    Word 2000 docs in WinXP (Word 2000 in WinXPRO)

    My word documents [Office 2000] all display as a series of y's after I upgraded from Win 98 to Win XP. I can still see the thumbnails for the documents- summary info and the Word icon, I just can't display them. Can anyone offer some helpful insights?

    Do the document display okay on other computers?

    I have never installed an new version of Windows over an old one. Did you change file systems during the upgrade &mdash e.g., FAT to FAT32 or NTFS? Were any other files affected?
