Change the Docx default to Doc

Hi,
I know there must be a way to do this in Word 2007.
I want to change the default on the Open in the word processor and the Save as to Doc from Docx. Can someone please tell
me how to do this?
That way when I open Word and start writing a new document and it will already be in Doc format.

In Word 2007, click on Office Button | Word Options | Save | Save files
in this format: Word 97-2003 format | OK.

While you can set the default save option to Word 97-2003 as described in
this thread, Word 2007 will still use its internal format whilst editing
i.e. a new document won't be in doc format until you save it in that format.
