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 - you should see a blank document.

If it is Microsoft Word that you are using, then VoG™'s advice is the best thing to do. Try using the Find or Search facility available from the Start button.
