How come I get an error saying blocked by registry policy when trying to open an old word document?

by on January 1, 2010

Q: I have an old word document (created in 98). My Microsoft Office 2003 will not let me open it, says blocked by my registry policy settings. How do I change these settings so that I can open this document please?
