word wont open files

I can not open any word files and outlook express wont open any emails. The computer just hangs and I have to shut it down. However I can open the word files by switching to an alternative account.

Search for the file normal.dot with searching for hidden files and folders enabled. Rename it to normal.old

Try starting Word.

VOG I think you are onto something because although istill can not open any files in word when I try to shut it down it asks if I want to save the new normal. It doesnt make any difference if I click yes or no. also how do I get the searchg results to show the file extension?

In the Search window, Tools | Folder Options, View tab - untick Hide extensions for known file types and tick Show hidden files and folders.
