Template files suddenly "dot auto file"

    I've got a problem with my MS Word templates (dot files) after reinstalling Parallels. Earlier I could just drag a template to another place, when clicking it it would open up as expected: as "Document 1" in Word. But suddenly these files is described as "dot auto file" and when clicking them they open up in Word with the filename, for example: template.dot. This behaviour is very annoying and I want the "right" behaviour back!

    Also, when I scan a dokument in PDF format from within Windows (XP) these are described as "pdf_auto_file". What is going on here?

    Hope somebody can help me with a solution!
