Hey guys, for the last week or so my Microsoft Office just hasn't been opening. I double click the executable or a Word document and the program just doesn't boot. I'll get an hour glass like it's loading for a second, and then the program just completely doesn't boot at all. Is there any type of diagnostic I can do to see if anything is corrupted? Any help or advice is welcomed and much appreciated. Thanks!

Edit: Using Office 2003.

Do Excel files open OK?

If it's just a Word problem, try renaming normal.dot to normal.old then try opening Word again.

Normal.dot can usually be found in C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

No client in Office's suite opens whatsoever. I have also tried to located Normal.doc and it is not located in the aforementioned folder and appears to be missing. I will try to uninstall and reinstall Office entirely and see where it leaves me.
