No matter what I try, Word starts by saying it needs to open in safe mode; whether I click yes or no, the Word box disappears, and that's the end of it.

I've spent a cuple days looking at the Microsoft community forums and found all kinds of solutions involving uninstalling and reinstalling Office, making up a new user to try it that way, etc. I do have an error code: 1079741819.

Is anybody else encountering this issue, and any new solutions to it, please?

If you pay monthly Aug 8

If you pay monthly, it's always worth checking that your means of payment is up to date.

So far, not so good Aug 9

I've tried these different things... and paid yearly, and Microsoft says I last paid in March, so up to date.

I forgot to mention, only Word is giving me trouble. Other Office products work just fine.

So you have done things like trying to manually open Word in safe mode, deleting the Normal.dotm template, re-registering WinWord, etc.?

Similar issue Aug 11

I had a very similar issue. Word may not necessarily be the issue. It could be the OS. In my case, it happened after I had installed Windows 10 a while ago. As time went by, more applications refused to open. My computer became useless. I made a backup on a portable hard drive and uninstalled and then reinstalled Windows 10 and my applications and it was fine after that. Try to uninstall and reinstall MS Office first and see how it goes. Also check if any other applications are failing to launch.

Repair Office. Aug 13

Normally this can be solved by going to programs and features, select Microsoft Office 365 and click Repair.

This repair will take a while but almost always solves any problems with office.
