I have Office XP on Windows XP.
Word is having a strange behavior. When I close the program or even when I am working, I get the next message:

"Runtime Error!
Program:C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\WINWORD.EXE

Abnormal program termination."


Also, I can't insert tables from the Table menu, because when I select Insert, it doesn't open the list of options, they are not active.

I have tried to repair Office, then re-install it, then deleted normal.dot and re-open Word. None of these worked.

Thank you for any suggestions.

When did Word work last time properly? Mar 29, 2006

Hello,

you may try System restore and put it back to the date when Word was working. This is always my first solution. I hope this will help you.

Start/ Programs/Accessories/System Tools/ System Restore

Regards,
Andrea

Virus? Mar 29, 2006

From the symptoms you describe, I would start with running a thorough antivirus check on your system.

It's worth a try.

Problem solved: partially Mar 30, 2006

It seems that the message error doesn't show up anymore, I couldn't say which is the reason.
Table menu still isn't available if I open a document by double-clicking on it; it is available only if I open a document opening the program first and then selecting Open and browsing for the document.

Thank you all
