->Does this issue happen with a specific 97 file or all the files?
-> Try to save a new test Word and Excel file in 97-2003 file format and open it to check what happens?

If this issue happens with specific files, try repairing those files and open them to see if it removed the possible file corruption. Check the following links to know how to repair Word and Excel files respectively:

Thank you all
