    MS Word 2000 SR-1 closes immediately on launch. My operating system in Microsoft XP Pro. I've removed the program and reinstalled it, restarting the system after each action. I've updated AVG and run it, then restarted the computer, but no luck. Any ideas?

    yes, here an idea
    though, you have remove the application from your computer, you system have kept some files from old installation.
    not to worry, this can be fixed by purging all MS Office files from your system.
    • let us start with add/remove programs & remove MS Office 2000
    • click Start, Run & type regedit & OK. browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office. right click that folder & choose the delete option.
    • go to C drive, Programs Files, & delete Microsoft Office from there. (don't worry if you receive an error of some files can not be removed, will just do it after reboot)
    • if the last step gave u an error, please reboot & delete after reboot (don't open any applications or browsers)
    • reboot
    • click Start, Run & type %TEMP%, the click OK. (delete all items within the folder that opens)
    • reboot
    • reinstall MS Office 2000
    this should fix your issue. please let me know how it goes
