    Hi guys,

    I have a little problem.It may be stupidly obvious and im being and idiot but that is nothing different!

    Word 2000, will not open. It opens to the "Microsoft Office 2000, Word" logo screen and just freezes up my comp. All the others work like Excel, Access etc but will word open, will it bugger.

    I have not installed any new software or anti virus updats, nada.

    I have uninstalled office, re installed office but still it freezes? I have run virus checks and i dont "seem" to have any?

    Im using Windows ME at the mo but about to upgrade to XP and office XP. Do you think this will get rid of the above problem?

    If anyone has any ideas so i can use word before i upgrade to XP i would be very grateful!!

    If you need any more info just shout!

    Thanks guys!

    Hi Rob

    Have you tried deleting the normal template file? It could be that its corrupt and stopping word from loading.

    Oh, Word 2000. When I saw the title of your thread, I thought you'd discovered the oldest existing instance of Word, circa 200 a.d. :)
