As You said you have MS Word installed, then Open the doc file, Right click the Image and select Save as Picture. Simple

As you have word 2003 installed, So, here is the solution.

Using the following steps for Word 2000, Word 2002/XP, or Word 2003:

  1. Open the document in Word.
  2. Click File from the Standard Toolbar.
  3. Click Save As.
  4. Specify your Save in location.
  5. Select Web Page (*.htm; .html) from the Save as type drop-down menu, as shown in Figure A. Make sure you choose Web Page (.htm; .html) and not Single File Web Page (.mht; *.mhtml). IMG1
  6. Click Save.

Word will create a .htm file and folder containing the embedded images. You can now have the Images.
