When I load a new or saved document in Word I can not see my menu bar. All I can see is the top title bar, the rulers, a small keyboard icon and a left tab icon. I have tried everythin but can not restore my menu bar. I think my teenage sons have been playing on my computer which they all deniy. I am using Windows 98 and Office 2000. Please help!

I have tried to locate 'Normal.dot but can't find it. I tried step3 in 'troubleshooting Word' but I can't access any menus in Word. I have tried step4 and I am stuck at step 5 I don't know how to dump registry key, I am feeling a little out of my depth here! Hope you can still help!

Okay. The instructions state the following:

If you cannot find normal.dot:

Check under User Templates in the Tools-Options menu of Word, on the File Locations tab. If you do not have "permission" to rename normal.dot, check with your network administrator or internal helpdesk (applies only on some PCs at work, not home users).

If you have Windows XP, you may need to turn on viewing of system files in order to find your normal.dot. To do so, open Windows Explorer, and go to Tools-Folder Options. Choose the View tab, and choose to Show Hidden Files and Folders.


Does that help you find normal.dot?

If this is going to be a show - I'm gonna run out and get some popcorn! DB don't solve anything till I get back!

It's hell to need a toolbar to help you find your toolbar! Ya don't miss em till they're gone!

Hang in there Ray!
