Microsoft word keeps crashing

  1. Hey, i have recently had a bunch of problems with my word.

    It crashes once it loads, reboots itself and crashes again (until I kill it). I really don't know what changed, since I haven't installed anything/changed hardware for quite some time now.

    It works fine in word safe mode. Its office 2003, running on windows xp pro.

    Any ideas?

    Sometimes it is fine when I get in, but when I close it still crashes.

    Cheers

    Try loading Word (or any other Office program, like Excel or Powerpoint, etc) and go to the Help menu and click "Detect and Repair"...
