    Why not consider one of the many free programs now available that are compatible with MS Office?? I prefer WPS Office, as it to me most closely resembles Office, but there are several others.

    Try starting Word in Safe Mode. Depending on the version you may be able to do this by holding the CTRL key while you click the Word icon. If that doesn't work do the following:

    Click "Run" from the Windows Start menu

    Type winword.exe /a (there is a space before the /a )

    If it works in safe mode then you probably have a corrupted add-on which can easily be disabled. You may also have a corrupted word template so if what I stated above doesn't work I'd delete the template (Normal.dot) and let the application re-create it for you.
