WINWORD.EXE has generated errors and will be closed by Windows.

I tried repairing/removing and reinstalling office suite 2000 and no cigar.  The other office products are working however Word refuses to do so.  Uggggh!

Any suggestions experts?

rename the registry key HKey_Current_User\software\microsoft\office\(version)\word and retry. Also search for and rename the file

If that works, you've got a bad template..since you replaced and it still failed, plus it works in other users...that's odd. No other templates?
Do you have any add-ins?
Look here:
C:\Documents and Settings\{profile}\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP
Remove any files found there (temporarily) and add them back one at a time.

Good Luck...

If i am not wrong this is the problem with a module which is conflicting with Winword.exe. Try sfc /scannow from run box in start menu. This should the job for you.

Let me know.

Thank you one and all. I renamed the file and walked through launching the application via the run command.  Lots of grief spared with your feedback!
