Microsoft Office Illegal Operation gdi32.dll

I'm having a problem trying to run Microsoft Office 97
applications. I just installed it, and whenever I try
starting up any application I get the error message
"This program caused an illegal operation and will be shut
down". When I click on details, it says "WINWORD caused an
invalid page fault in module GDI32.DLL at 0137:bff3191c"
I tried deleting and recreating the Temporary Internet Files
Directory, as suggested somewhere else, but it didn't help.
Can anyone help me with this problem?

Here's a suggestion... try running it in safe mode (if that is possible). If you don't get the error, a probable cause could be your video driver. Check the manufacturers web site and see if they have an updated video driver your your machine / video card.
