Try to open with WordPad and see if it helps, email to your friend and see if it can be opened there.

You'll probably have to purchase a monthly subscription to use all the Microsoft programs. It sucks big time.

One can still buy full versions of Office and not use Office 365 at this point.

I don't think so, the readers are always free to download.

Why, would you 1st post about a non readable computer file be made in a forum for engine oil? I would think you would look towards a computer forum 1st.

I would download and install the free LibreOffice program and open it with that.

Quick fix:
Email the file to yourself and open on another computer
or as mentioned download another program (I use Apache open office)

Try to open it with OpenOffice or LibreOffice. I found that those can sometimes open files that Word cannot.

Also you can recover Word document here https://www.fixtoolbox.com/wordfix.html

Than re-open the file.
