Windows 7: Why does Saving Word file to .doc leaves it corrupted

Why does Saving Word file to .doc leaves it corrupted

I'm using Word 2007 and it gives me the option of saving a file to the .doc format instead of .docx. However it gets corrupted and it ends up looking like a notepad file when I open it.

Any fix for this?

Did you upgrade from Office 2003 to 2007?.

If you have the FileFormat convertors installed, - Remove it.

No didn't upgrade. Originally bought Office 2007 but want to convert to .doc because I've heard that a lot of businesses can't open docx files.

I don't have any FileFormat converters was just using the save option that allows to save as 97-2003 document.
