Everytime I start Microsoft Word 2k7 on a Vista OS, The program attempts to start, stops, then states that it has encountered an error and needs to be shut down. I decline sending the error report, and am immediately prompted by a dialog box that states that the file I was trying to open cannot be found. This is true for every file that I open with Word. Tried reinstalling office, to no avail. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Remove any add-ins you may have.
Start Word in Safe Mode with
