What version of Word?

Have downloaded any Service Packs for it?

Firstly I would suggest you uninstall word and then re-install it if you haven't already done so. I know that sounds like teaching gradma to suck eggs but.............

Via e-mail - Word 2000


Does this apply: click here

Or try the Office detect and Repair function.

Use Find to search for a file called NORMAL.DOT (the default document template). When searching make sure that you use the option to include hidden files and folders.

Rename all NORMAL.DOT to ABNORMAL.DOT

Then try to start Word again.

This is a known issue with Word and Word 2000 in particular.
