Somehow this Wordview is now associated with your .doc files.

Well, since this is a MG list but who knows - bound to be someone else who 
may want to know.

In Windows Explorer, right click on the filename or its icon. Choose "Open 
With", then an Open With box will allow you to choose the program to open 
your file with. If the box that says "Always use this program to open these 
files" is checked and you choose the correct program, you will now 
associate that type of file (defined by the extension like ".doc")  with 
that program (docs to Word).
