Using Windows Explorer, find all occurences of normal.dot and rename or delete them. Then try Word again.
Hope this helps.
I have developed a problem with MS Word 2000...when I launch, I get the intro screen and then nothing, the prog just hangs. Nothing responds, there are no error messages and I have to hit the restart button on my PC to quit. Even 'ctrl/ alt/ del' gives no response.
I can't think of anything I have installed/ uninstalled recently which may have caused this. Word worked a few days ago, now nothing. I have tried uninstalling/ reinstalling...no joy.
My OS is ME (I have also system-restored...still no joy). Thankyou in advance for any advice...I'm tearing my hair out!
