I am running Office 2003 but cannot access files in My Documents or select them from FILE.
An error message WORD CANNOT OPEN THIS DOC TEMPLATE (C:\ Program File ...\ Startup\dgn.word.dot).
When I close WORD there is an error message THE FILE NORMAL ALREADY EXISTS – although I have unselected the “Prompt to save Normal Template” in TOOLS / Options / Save.
I have not previously had problems with Office 2003. However I did a McAfee Quick Clean prior to the problem manifesting and may have cleaned more than I intended. However, would that explain WORD not reinstalling properly?
I have tried several Restore Dates – no luck. I can create new MS WORD documents – but not access them (except in Wordpad or MS WORKS).
Go to Control Panel then Power Options then Advanced, second panel from the bottom turn the option on 'When I press the Power Button on My Computer' to Hibernate or what ever you want. Then when you press the Power Button on your computer case, your computer will enter Hibernate mode or in my case Shut Down.
