I Cant Open Word

After a typical usage of MS Word, I shut the computer down. The next day, I try to open in but there is a message saying that it has to link in with frontpage or whatever. Then it says that I need to insert the Office/Frontpage disc. What caused this? Im currently looking for my CD but does anyone have an idea what caused it or how to fix it? I cant use Office anymore now until I find that CD. Any help at all will be appreciated much.

Re: Word problem

It might help if you give the full and litteral text of the message, so it can be googled for a possible solution without the CD.
Did you already try a System Restore? This typically is something that should be undone this way.

And, of course, ...

what happens if you rename your normal.dot (default profile). I don't expect a corrupted normal.dot is the problem here, but it's worth a try nonetheless.
