Word:mac 2004 will not load

by dhexamer / August 5, 2009 5:09 AM PDT

I have a MaxMini with OS X 10.5.7
2 GB ram
98 GB of available HD space
Office:mac 2004 installed

All was fine until yesterday. If I click on a document file or on the word icon the splash sheet is displayed and all stops there. When I force a quit it shows "Word (not responding)"
Excel and PowerPoint are fine.
Nothing was added to the machine within the last several weeks

I have tried:
Removing Office and reloading (twice, once automatically and once manually)
Booted in safe mode
Load Word with shift key down
Have run repair permissions and fix disk from original cd's
Have run out of ideas

Thank you, Thank you.
I typed sudo update_prebinding -root / -force in Terminal and magic, all is well.
Thanks again
