    Type following in Notepad:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc]
    @="Word.Document.8"
    "Content Type"="application/msword"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\OpenWithList]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\OpenWithList\WordPad.exe]
    @=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\ShellNew]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\Word.Document.6]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\Word.Document.6\ShellNew]
    "FileName"="winword.doc"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\Word.Document.8]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\Word.Document.8\ShellNew]
    "FileName"="winword8.doc"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\WordDocument]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\WordDocument\ShellNew]
    "FileName"="winword2.doc"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\WordPad.Document.1]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\WordPad.Document.1\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    
    
    Save it with any_name.REG and then run it!
    It should add "Microsoft Word Document" in NEW menu...
