Word won't start up. It begins then shuts down

Specs: Windows 10
I have Microsoft Office 2013 and Word and Excel won't open anymore. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, repair, and nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Try another office program & lets see if that works.

I use SoftMaker FreeOffice

Are you sure they aren't just opening minimized in the tray?

You could try a registry cleaner. CCleaner has one that has never deleted anything that caused issues for me. That said, I still save a backup on the desktop for a few days before deleting.

You could also try doing a system recovery to a time before this problem. The procedure is as follows in Windows 10. Control Panel> Recovery> Open System Restore> Follow the prompts.

Your subject line says that the application "begins then shuts down".

What exactly does that mean? Can you provide some details so that we can fully understand what happens?
