Below is the error I am now receiving when trying to use MS Word.
I am unable to use MS Word now since I receive this error.
Please help since I need to type over 45 pages by Sunday night for my job. I don't type I lose money.
Thank you for any help.
I have MS Word 2002 SP3 :whistling:

Hi Piratesmate.

Look at Microsoft article 555220 for troubleshooting tips for the Visual C++ Runtime Error.

If nothing else, starting Word with the /a switch may enable you to get your stuff typed by your deadline.

Let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the help.
For some strange reason, my desktop has what I call "ghost" icons indicating that a word document was open and in my case, it showed that two were open when in fact they were not. The two MS word documents that were showing up on the desktop were very old stuff that either have been deleted some time ago or a document that hasn't been used in a long time.
Perhaps my computer is haunted? LOL
Anyways, what I did was drag those two "ghost" documents to the trash bin and rebooted the computer. Computer ran okay after that.
Any reason why all of a sudden it would show that there are two other MS word document files open when in fact they weren't?

Deleting those two got rid of the C++ error? I don't know why that would have happened, but I'm glad you've gotten it fixed :whistling:

Linda,
You are correct.
I just dragged the two supposedly open files to the recycle bin and then rebooted and everything is fine now.
Strange!
Appreciate your help! :whistling:
