Problem with Microsoft Word

Word is very slow and keeps freezing up and is almost unuseable. Other Microsoft applications are also very slow. It first started going slow and has gradually got to this bad point. Also when you manage to open a file and go to print it will eventually print but the ink monitor is blanked out (white). So when ink runs out it is guess work which colour needs changing.

I have done a Disk Cleanup, cleared all Temp. files (internet and others), looked in Add Remove for anything I can delete, defragmented the Disk.

have you run anti spyware progs? could be a nasty. If it is just word then search for and find 'normal.dot' and rename it normal.old then restart word and it will make a new normal.dot. You will lose any alterations that you have made to the prog so if this does not work you can delete the new one and rename old to dot.
