This looks like the files 'normal.doc' has become corrupted. this file is the one that opens a blank document. to cure the problem search for normal.doc on the Pc and rename it to normal1.doc then reboot and open word, this will install a new normal.doc..

When i click on the wired symbols etc, it says normal at the top ??

Follow STREETWORK's advice but normal.doT

This is a hidden file so click Start, click Search, click All files and folders, and then click More advanced options.
