Can you better explain what happens. As I read it, it's rather impossible: you open Word by doubleclicking an existing document, it's not in Safe Mode, you do File>New to create a new document and suddenly it's in safe mode. And if you say you "try to create" a new document, does that imply it won't be created, but you get an error message? And why can't you copy/paste? Can you safe it in .rtf-format?
Can you point us to what you researched? No sense to do it all over.
Only YOU can tell if this is related to IE7, because only YOU can tell when exactly this started. And, of course, only YOU can uninstall IE7 to see if it makes a difference. Anyway, there wasn't an IE7 back in may, so it's unlikely to be related to that particular cause. My question to you: did this problem appear exactly when you downloaded IE7 and what happens if you uninstall IE7 and go back to IE6?
But I would start with finding normal.dot (using Windows Explorer) and deleting it. That solves quite a lot of Word problems.
Until this is solved, consider using Write from www.openoffice.org as a replacement. It's free.
Today I tried to create a document in Microsoft Word and it automatically routed me to SAFE MODE?
I run Windows XP SP 1&2, IE 7. I have Microsoft WorksSuite 2001, Microsoft Word 2000 SR-1.
I tried researching the reason and it appears to be a "security" issue back in May of 2006 ...which I am not understanding at all. Did this occur when I recently downloaded IE 7?
Can someone PLEASE help me. Is this a permanent thing? If so, I am having a problem after creating the document, how do I transfer it and/or cut and paste it?
It's ALWAYS something.!!
Thanks for your help,....anyone please.
