Word 2016 stuck on "starting" splash screen
Posted on 2016-10-14
When you click on the Microsoft Word 2016 icon...the splash screen comes up then stops and it just says "starting" on it. It will go no further.
Sys = Windows 10
To save time, here is what has already been tried:
- Word 2013 was installed - it was showing exact same problem. This was totally uninstalled.
- Word 2016 was installed
- HDD health checked - no problems detected.
- Tried starting Word in Safe Mode and with no-plugins. Will not work on both counts.
Really lost on what do do next.
