Word 2000 freezes

Word 2000 freezes when I ask it to open a file. When I select the file and click to open it, the hourglass appears and stays on screen. I have to crash start the computer. Control/alt/delete does not work to restart. A re-install of Word did not make any difference. I'm still on Win98SE. Any ideas?

Search for the file normal.doT and delete it.

Thanks VoG - I think I beat you to it. I remembered the old problem with Normal.dot and renamed it. All is well now.
