Lost MS-Word !?

I seem to have lost my MS-Word (2007)!

This morning I went to a forum & downloaded a file on EU Consumer Warranty's.
I went to save it to Word, but when I clicked MY DOCUMENTS, Word wasn't on the list.
MS-Excel is there along with other apps.

I clicked the Short-cut Icon on my desktop and MS Word does boot up – but when I try to open any file, it comes up with “The directory name is not valid”.

Excel opens & runs fine.

All was well when I switched off last night.
I've tried a couple of short Restores – but it says it can't restore (first time this has happened.)
I've tried the Diagnostic Tool, which says everything is o.k. ?

I use it every day,,,, so need to get it working again.

Can I fix it ?
Should I re-load MS-Office ?
Is it something you guys know about ?

as usual – greatest thanks

As you were folks,,,,

For some reason, the MS-Word folder had found itself in Quark Xpress folder,,,, I have no idea how, cos I havn't used Quark for months.

Sorry to waste your time.
Having said that:
I Still don't know why it wouldn't restore for a few days,,,, I was about to leave that until needed, but when it's needed, may be too late - i'll start another post,,,,
