I Cant Open Word

by thekeyboardist / January 19, 2006 7:48 AM PST

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.

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.

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.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
