Word Not Staying Open

I am using Windows ME and whenever I open up word 2000 it will load up, and stay open for around 10 seconds. The office assistant comes up and then disappears and then word just closes. What is going on??

Perhaps the installation is corrupted. Has it every worked for you. If so, try a repair on it - under help_detect and repair.

If you cannot get that far, then go into add/remove progs and try a repair from there (instead of uninstall).

it has always worked for me until now. I have tried a repair and I have reinstalled it too but it isn't working

Try deleting the normal.dot template - do a search for normal.dot and delete it. Word will create a new one and should behave correctly.
