MS Word Shutdown

by iandiiq / April 1, 2004 9:36 AM PST

Whenever I try and start MS Word it gives me an error message of an illegal action and shuts down. I reinstalled word but still get the same message.
Any Help
PS it worked fine yesterday and Excel works ok but I think Outlook is also malfunctioning.
