Windows 7: Default programs

Default programs

I have loaded microsoft suite 2003 on my computer but the default program for .doc items remains word 2007 which I do not wish to buy. How do I get the default program changed to the 2003 version that is loaded instead of the 2007 version I don't wish to buy?
