SDL Trados Translator's Workbench not running - when it is

I hope somebody can help.

When I try to translate using Trados 2007 I get the message 'SDL Trados Translator's Workbench not running', when it most definitely is running!

From what I can see this is a very common problem. I have tried all of the suggested action without any success.

I am using Trados 2007 with Windows 7 and Word 2003. Would upgrading the version of Word have any effect?

As always any help is much appreciated.

Happened to me once Aug 7, 2014

or twice. It seems it happens when you open WB first and then Word. I simply closed both windows and opened Word first and then Workbench.
