Have you tried copying and pasting everything except the first line?

I never found out what caused it, but I used to get occasional corrupt files
in '95 where that technique was the only thing that would fix it. I never
found out why, however, but I suspect that it was some sort of non-visible
file header information that was appended to the file above the first line.

FWIW, these files occurred most frequently after thunderstorms.

Subject: corrupt word doc fix?

Hi, I'm getting a message "this document may be corrupt" when I try to open
a particular Word document. I tried the suggestion of pasting the contents
into a new file but keep getting the corrupt message. I've run a virus-scan
but found nothing in that area.
