Hi LMatth,

Look at the "Known Issues" section of this Microsoft article.

<excerpt>
Let me fix it myself To unregister the mswrd632 converter yourself, edit the registry as follows:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Text Converters\Import\MSWord6.wpc
  3. On the Edit menu, click Delete.
  4. Click Yes.
  5. Exit Registry Editor.
This change will effectively unregister the converter and disable it for third-party applications and for Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office will use its own text converters to open these kinds of files.
