Suddenly I can't open any word docs nor will Word itself open. Have deleted normal.dot and it didn't work.

Trying running it from the command line:

Start
Run
Type in: winword.exe /a

This will force Word to run and prevents add-ins and global templates from being loaded automatically.

Thank you - Thank you - Thank you!!! It worked - now my next step is to actually start backing up my pc instead of taking the chance of losing everything.

I appreciate your help and your quick reponse!

Thanks!

You understand that this means you have a corrupt add-in someplace.
You'll have to muck around and find which one is causing you grief.

On the Task Bar
Tools
Templates & Add-ins.
