Can't access documents downloaded from old laptop

I have just bought a new laptop - Toshiba - as the motherboard died on the old one. The technician downloaded all my files etc. but can't open wps documents :-( They lent me Works 2000 which I downloaded but still no document. Help, please!

Try downloading a WPS file converter:

OpenOffice.org, well the Go-Oo version anyway, opens WPS files. But so should Works 2000.

Downloaded this but still no luck so I must be doing something wrong. The message keeps coming up that "Adobe Reader cannot open this file because it is not a supported file type" Please don't shout at me but I don't understand!

you need to set the file association correctly.

adobe reader is made to open PDF files NOT wps files.
