Windows does not include software that supports those file types by default. You will be able to open those types of files after you install software that supports them. You can install Adobe Reader for free, but Microsoft Office is an expensive application. For reading and writing Office files I normally recommend installing the free LibreOffice suite instead. Scott.

If this is happening on multiple systems then it sounds like a problem with malware or possibly your Windows install disc or the software installation source/media has somehow been corrupted. I would do a clean install to a known-good spare drive using known-good installation media as a test. Scott.
