Word 2003 has worked fine for sometime and recently when I am using Outlook 2003 and try to do NEW or REPLY, Word will crash and want to open in safe mode. I have uninstalled and did a new install and it seems as soon as I put SP3 back on, the problem starts again. It this a problem with addins? SP3? And why would it start now as we have had SP3 on for some time. I have not added any new programs. If it is addin's, is there a way to tell which one? In safe mode, I don't see addins so is there another way to fix this? I have also tried deleteing normal.dot and that didn't help. I have deleted the registry keys for Office and uninstalled and reinstalled. Problem keeps coming back when SP3 is applied. What is in SP3 that is causing this?? I am trying to look at several things but as yet have not gotten a fix, except to run in safe mode.
