MS Word background purple and Outlook cannot send email using word

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!
