What version of Word?

Have downloaded any Service Packs for it?

Firstly I would suggest you uninstall word and then re-install it if you haven't already done so. I know that sounds like teaching gradma to suck eggs but.............

Via e-mail - Word 2000

Does this apply: click here

Or try the Office detect and Repair function.

Tried deleting and re-loading but no joy

Use Find to search for a file called NORMAL.DOT (the default document template). When searching make sure that you use the option to include hidden files and folders.


Then try to start Word again.

This is a known issue with Word and Word 2000 in particular.
