Outlook:  when sending an email everytime I click send it says
Microsoft Office Word
Unspecified error

So I disabled word as the default editor in outlook and email sends fine

Word:

Obviously it's word that is the problem, so I opened word and the background stays purple constantly. The text was defaulting to white.

I reset the settings to default and now the text is black and the background of the paper is still purple.

I deleted all the normal.dot files I found as well.

Anyone ever had this happen?

Just a hindsight comment:

 I wish that I'd posted my article for you: http://howtotroubleshoot.blogspot.com/2005/10/how-to-clean-word.html.  I'm sorry that I wasn't on top of things for you.  Maybe it'll come in handy next time.

Good job on getting it fixed!

To Patch or not to Patch? That is the question!

Don't get caught out like thousands of others around the world in the recent Ransomware Fiasco!
