Try this:

Click Help-> About Word
Click Disabled items
Click any listed there that you know and try to enable them

Sometimes a bad document or Addin can cause this issue.  If the Addin/Document with not start or you do not know it, search your drive and remove it.

Also, search and remove any ~*.* files to your recycle bin before restarting Word.


already tried this, and there was an add in or whatever it is there but still doing it.  

Did you uninstall the Addin and then enable it?

With the addin removed, when you enable it, it disappears as Word cannot find it.
