The default document template is corrupted.

Do a search for NORMAL.DOT (search for hidden files and folders) and rename it to ABNORMAL.DOT

Usually problems like this with Word can be solved by Deleting/Renaming the file Word uses. Do a search of your hard drive for the file Rename all instances of that file that you find, to, reboot your computer and try opening Word again see if the problem is cured. Word will create a new so don't worry about renaming the old instances.
