When I open any of my Microsoft Office 2003 applications (Word, Excel, Publisher), they stay open for about 5 seconds and then display the following message:
Microsoft Office Word has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. The information you were working on might be lost. Microsoft Office Word can try to recover it for you.
<Check box> Recover my work and restart Microsoft Office Word
etc. etc...(NOTE - it says Excel or Publisher instead of Word if I am in those applications)
< Send Error Report > < Don't Send >
I choose "Don't Send" and uncheck the Recover box.
I have tried repairing/re-installing/re
moving and re-installing the office application. I have also tried Microsoft Office updates & Windows updates. I even ran a virus scan, plus I ran spybot, adaware, cwshredder, hijack this, and ccleaner...and nothing worked, so I am in desperate need of help. I have documents that I need to use that are on my system.
I have already tried the stuff in this article - http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/Word/Q_21609402.html?qid=21609402
, but it did not help.
I have made no changes to my system, am running Windows XP professional, and don't know why this is happening. I have found a few so-called solutions online for Word but they didn't work, so my problem is with the whole Office program. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated...PLEASE HELP me!
