OK. Up until yesterday (Friday), Microsoft Word & I got along great. Now all of a sudden, whenever I try to run it...my computer freezes and I have to restart. I ran my spyware programs, McAfee Viruscan AND re-installed it...and no dice.
Alternatively, you can try logging out of Windows and logging in as a different user to see if this recreates the problem. Sometimes a corrupted normal.dot is to blame, and each of your profiles should have a unique copy of this file. If the issue is resolved on a different profile, you know it is a configuration issue and not some other software on your machine that has corrupted it by overwriting files.
Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
