Got a glitch with Word.

  jak_jaa 14:00 19 Feb 2003

Something appears to be causing a conflict. Word loads and works fine (2002) but click on either 'File' or 'Tools' on the toolbar at the top and it kicks me out with the message that Word has encountered a problem and needs to close.Sorry for the inconvienience. Inconvenience is not the right expression it is just infuriating. Anyone any suggestions as to what could be the problem?

Not sure of problem, but if you put your CD in and choose, "Repair word", then it will do so, and replace any damaged files without altering your setup. J.

Thanks Djohn. Tried that and it hasn't worked!

If you are using Win XP, then try a system restore, if on 98se then, Start/run, and type SFC in the box, that may fix it for you, it will certainly find any corrupt files and ask if you want to replace them.

When this error occurs, what message is revealed if you click on the Details button?

  jak_jaa 19:21 19 Feb 2003

Message is as follows.....
AppName: winword.exe
AppVer: 10.0.2627.0
ModName: winword.exe
ModVer: 10.0.2627.0
Offset: 00828f2 that any help?

jak_jaa, don't worry, VoG™ will fix it when he reads your post!

Have you installed other software which may have caused this error. If so it could be a simple problem of updating DLL files? Just a thought?

I cannot find anything relevant to the particular error that you are experiencing. Errors in Word are commonly caused by corruption of the default document template NORMAL.DOT

Exit Word. Try doing a search for NORMAL.DOT (ensure that you include hidden files in the search) and rename all to ABNORMAL.DOT

Restart Word
