I am running Win98SE and recently Word97 has been taking longer and longer to load. Now it will not load at all but sticks on the splash screen. I can eventually get rid of the splash screen but by then my system is dangerously low on memory resources and I almost always have to reboot. What's up doc ? Cheerz, Baz
It might be that when it tried to load previously a temp file was created by a corrupt normal.dot Although you have now got rid of normal.dot, and reinstalled, perhaps there is a temp file that still exists that is causing a problem.
I'm assuming that you reinstalled win98 "over the top", rather than doing a reformat as well?
I tried your suggestion but still the program stuck on the splash screen and by the time I had got rid of it there wasn't enough memory left to launch Outlook Express !! Yes, I did re-install Win98SE over the top of the existing program as I am missing too many files to make formatting an option unless in the end it becomes the ONLY option. I can work around this problem if I have to but would prefer to resolve it. Cheers, Baz
