I am working with Windows 98 and I am unable to open Word Documents when I click on the item every thing freezes and you have to ctrl+alt+del to get out of it and then it show file (Not responding). When you end task the desk top clears and then resumes as normal. I can open other files but not word.

Possibly corrupt 'normal.dot' template file. Find and delete all instances of normal.dot and restart. When you fire up Word again, it should automatically generate a new (good) version.

Otherwise a virus, or try running sfc...

I have checked but can not find any trace of you suggestion. But I now find the spoolsrv32 in not responding which may have something to do with it. I tried saving document to disc but still could not open it.
