Do a search for the file NORMAL.DOT (note doT not doC). You will need to enable searching for hidden files and folders to find it. In the search results box, right click the file and select Rename. Call it NORMAL.OLD

Start Word - it should start normally.

Hi knobler, how are you doing!
Firstly it might seem long and winding,
But its important first have you an upto date anti virus, firewall, spyware catcher, such as "spybot search and destroy ,adware ect boring i know but an important factor in memory issues kind regards Mammak.

Cheers VoG - I think I better be honest and say that as soon as I saw your reply I remembered the cure - I must be low on memory too!

Mammak - Thanks for the advice but nellie very kindly checked my machine out for me the other day - well worth the donation to ASAP and NSPCC
