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.
