Word as email editor on Outlook

I use Office XP and it has developed the following glitch. When I click reply on an email I get a message saying that This form requires Word as your emial editor, but Word is either busy or cannot be found. The form will be opened in Outlook instead.
When I try to close the computer I am told to close Word first (even though I am not using Word) If I then open Word and exit it I can shut the computer.
When I restart Outlook opens up normally with Word as the email editor until I try to reply to an email and then the whole things begins again.
Is this a virus?? Everything else is working normally.
