Hello DCrats,

Reset the normal.dot file in Excel.  With MS Word close, search for and rename normal.dot file.  Restart MS Word, and normal.dot file will be recreated.

If no joy, repair Word and Excel.  Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.  Select Microsoft Office and select Remove.  A page will come up.  Select Repair.

Hope this helps!

Hi - try to clear your Outlook cache folder.  Here are some directions:
To do that in Win XP, you'll have to trace the path of C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.  Just simply clearing the Temp Int Files does not clear the OLK folder.  
Another problem is that the OLK folder is super hidden, and won't automatically show up in the Temporary Internet Files folder if you trace it in Windows Explorer.  You will be able to get to the OLK folder by going to Start, Run, and typing %temp% in the run window, and then trace the path noted above.


In Vista, the path is different.  The Outlook Temp folder is located at:
 C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\
