This has never happened to me before. When I try to open Word (2000 w/ SR 1a patch) it says that it has "performed an illegal operation and will shut down."
This is the exact error message:
WINWORD caused an invalid page fault in
module WINWORD.EXE at 017f:30395c27.

I have tried the repair and reinstall option using my original Office 2000 disks, to no avail. My business is paralyzed without a word processor. I can't think of what steps to do next. Can anyone help me fast?
