Then a week or so ago, the MS-WORD part of it, WinWord, started to refuse to load. The rest of the functions worked perfectly, as usual.
When I tried to open/start a new MS-WORD file...*.doc, I would get a Windows XP error message thingy and off to MS-HEAVEN the error message would go...not much use to me though...no feed back.
I rummaged around geekstogo and the internet, found and applied a possible fix, suggested for another problem with WORD...delete all ref's to the *.dot files.
This cured the problem. But for only a day or so, then I am back to square one; deleting the *.dot files again, setting them up, working; deleting, setting them up, working; deleting, setting them up, working; etc..
It has become quite tedious.
Any suggestions as to what's going on and how I might get back to the good old days, where once the *.dot is setup it stays that way.
