    Try pressing Ctrl+ALT+Del which will bring up the open applications dialog Task Manager.

    You should be able to see what is open from there.

    Usually this sort of thing happens because you tried to open something and then clicked the mouse on the background application at the same time that a message box appeared. You need to clear the message box to get things going again...

    Alternatively try closing down Outlook and Word and then re-opening them and trying to open the attachment after that.

    If you still have problems update the question and I'll see what more I can suggest.
