Start up error on Word 2000

When starting Word 2000 on a Windows XP Proffessional Laptop, it closes the application down within seconds and leaves an Event ID of 1000 in Event Viewer details as follows :-

Faulting application winword.exe, version, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.1.2600.1106, fault address 0x00001d24.

I have tried deleting the Word Key under

to no avail, also tried deleting the word keys themselves and have word install itself again using the winword.exe /a switch to try and fix the problem without success either.

what else can I try to get this user back using Word?
