I'm guessing that the shortcut to word has been removed.
Try a search for winword.exe, this is the application and if it exists on your system should start word.
You may have to make a new shortcut to it
If woddoes not exist, you will have to re-load it back in.

If it was, you'll have wiped everything and ended up with a clean install of XP.

If not, Terrys suggestion is a good one. Find it in Windows Explorer, then right click it and hold and drag it to desktop and release. Create Shortcut Here.

hi, no sign of word when searched, only wordpad. yes it was a full system recovery.

You might find that your version or word came on a copy of MS Works that was supplied with your machine.

You might have to see if you have it on a seperate disc, you will also need the product code that came with it.
