Word 2007 Not Opening

by pjmar / December 11, 2010 6:26 AM PST

When I have MS Office 2007 installed on my Dell running Windows 7. When I open Excel in opens fine. When I open Word a User Account Control box appears and I have to click on Yes to get into Word. Anyway to change this short of turning off my User Account Contro?

Thank You,
Peter

I had tried uninstall and reinstall but didn't help. Under Trust Center Settings, Active X Settings, the Safe Mode box is checked. Also the prompt me before enabling all controls with minimal restrictions is checked. Should these be checked?

Thank You,

Try each setting. I don't have a matching system to see what the settings are by default.

I tried each one but still no luck. When the User Account Control box comes up when I click yes it will go to Word and work fine. It is something I can live with but probably an easy fix for someone looking at all my settings.

Thank You,
Peter
