You must be running Windows2000 Pro.  This 'memory could not be "read"'
msg seems to appear quite often in Win2000. You would have probably found
that after a reboot you could have carried on without the error.  I was
getting this quite often after upgrading from Win98 to Win2000.  Had
version 9.0 Millennium edition of Lotus SmartSuite.  Reinstalled a few
times, sometimes I could open WordPro docs, and sometimes I couldn't.
Problem also extended to opening Word Docs with an old viewer program for
Word97.  Uninstalled the IBM ViaVoice integration piece from SmartSuite
and it seems to have solved the problem with both WordPro and older MSWord
viewer.  But it's not completely gone.  Occasionally I will still get this
'cannot "read" memory' msg, a reboot usually makes it go away and let me
get at my documents again.

I realized my PC came with MS Works, so I installed Word 2002 from
there.  Now everything is A-OK.  But it sure is strange that it was fine
for months until yesterday.  Must have been that WDT Service Pack 4 I
installed.
