MS Word 2000 illegal operation

On opening MS Word 2000 (from MS Works 2000) I get "an illegal operation and program will be closed down" message, with "Winword caused an Invalid Page Fault in module winword.exe" message under DETAILS, and code 018f:303e4fbd.
I have previously uninstalled MS Works, and reinstalled all, Word then worked for about 2 weeks, now failing again.

Any tips anyone?

Try the detect and repair from the help menu if you can get that far (if it is in the Works version).

Otherwise, delete the normal.dot (basic template) and restart - Word will reinstate it.
