    Getting problem while opening office files on Windows 7

    I have Dell Laptop which is powered by Windows 7. when I click on an office document which is Office 2007 to open, I get this message, "There was a problem sending the command to the program". If I click on it again or sometimes it may take 2 or 3 tries, it will finally open for me. I'm also having a glitch with a program that is tied into Internet Explorer 9 and maybe if this problem with Office gets fixed, my other problem will be fixed as well since they are tied together.

    Friend,
    You might be facing this problem due to some wrong updates.
    Or your system mey be infected by some kind of malware.
    Try to scan all of your system properly by full scan.
    It will take some time.
    Now uninstall the MS- office and then again install it.
    I think now you will not facing such kind of problem.
