Have you checked for viruses and spyware?

If you have, and you are clean...

Stop a few unneeded processes and programs starting with windows.

Which version of windows you using?

Win98. I have checked for Spyware and viruses.

Hi BIGBAGGY,

have you also checked to see how much hard drive space you have left?

left click 'my computer' choose C drive...highlight it and right click it. Go to properties and left click. This will give you a pie chart showing the size of your hard drive and how much space you have left on it.

I believe you should try to keep at least a third of the drive empty.

You should see a disk 'cleanup' option on the same page.

when the normal.dot file becomes corrupted. Find it and delete it. Next time Word fires up it'll make a new one.
