something's wrong KOffice

Well, kword failed to open many files, as well as other Koffice aplications...
I don't really know a way to solve that problem, I even downloaded the last version of KOffice but still doesn't work, so my advice if for you to download OpenOffice HERE, I did that and it's running fine!

One tjomg O realise about ms doc file is that it needs to be writeable in order to be open properly by openoffice.

Usually, when we copy file from NTFS drive, it is read-only file permission.
