Could be a problem with the default word template... i mean normal.docx, try reinstalling office though...
make a search for normal (default) document template and delete it. Deleting default template do not any harm. It is created automatically immediately when needed.
If the problem is being caused by template of word, it should be solved. If not there might be other solutions.
Reinstalling Office again might be a solution you can attempt at last.
I deleted the Normal.dotm, Normal11.dot, and NormalEmail.dotm from C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates and started Microsoft Word and sure enough the message is gone. But when I close and restart it again, the message is back.
This is starting to get really annoying. I guess the last resort is to just reinstall it.
Mostly this problem may occur with the software installation. So, as said before, try uninstalling the program [be sure to restart it after uninstall] and then re-install offfice again.
i think u have not having the licesence, please purchase it and use.
I think I'm having the same problem. I just open Word 2007 then when I try to open any file, it just freezes. Is it the same thing? And how exactly do I fix it?
Your problem is with the Normal template no doubt. As you've said you deleted the normal template and it was OK but when closed and restarted again the problem started, this indicates there is some virus that is infecting the normal template of Ms-Word.
Please wait. I need to make a search about the viruses that infect office template files. I'll post here if I find any solutions.
Till that time try one thing, create a new template based on any of the built in Word template and remove any contents from it and save it. Create all the document based on this new template and see if that virus infects again or not for that new template.
Any other solutions? I know I can switch to OpenOffice anytime, but it'll take a lot of adjustments as I'm usually OC in making documents.
