Viewing a word doc

  1. Is there a small free program that can view MS Word .docs in Windows (xp)? Preferably something small that just can view and print them. I know there is Open Office and others, but they are a big download and do more than I need. I can't find my office cd lol


    edit... Nevermind, I found "Word Viewer" from MS, supposedly free.

    There's also "Antiword"
    "Antiword converts the binary files from Word 2, 6, 7, 97, 2000, 2002 and 2003 to plain text and to PostScript."
