    Word won't 'show' (Word 97/Win 98)

    I have a friend using Word 97 on a Windows 98 machine. When she clicks on the system tray Word icon (or any other path to Word - start>programs>word or via start>documents -- the splash screen comes on then the program immediately minimizes, and can't be restored. When clicking on Restore there is an animated flash of a "box" which then disappears and the item in the system tray remains unchanged. The program worked just fine until today then this started. We've tried rebooting, etc., but to no avail.
    Can you suggesting something to help her?
    Thanks!

    You might try the approach to replacing a corrupted data key: <!post=Post #148712,148712>Post #148712<!/post>.
