Using Word XP with Windows XP Home. Suddenly and without warning i cannot type. Ie word opens normally and works perfectly (ie mouse opens menus etc) but when i type nothing appears. Tried reinstalling with no avail.
No problems with any other program except office applications.
Notepad and wordpad work fine.
Any help appreceiated.

The first, and obvious, thing that springs to mind is that the font colour has been changed to white. Click on Format / Font and make sure Font Colour is set to "Automatic"

If that's not it, try deleting the file Normal.dot; Word will recreate a new one when you restart it.
