    Must I reinstall Word? (2003)

    Hello,

    The screenshot shows an error from Outlook when I try to compose a new email. I've already done Detect+Repair, but that doesn't seem to have fixed it.

    Any ideas? I really like using Word as my Email Editor & would like to sort out this palaver.

    Thanks,

    BD.

    What versions of Word are on your computer? If you had Microsoft Works installed and installed Office over it without uninstalling it, that counts, too.

    The problem seems to have gone away simlpy by a PC Shutdown & Restart!

    Bizzare.

    If it happens again (let's hope not <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>), quit Word and Outlook, and start the Task Manager (right-click an empty part of the Task Bar and select Task Manager, or press Ctrl+Alt+Del and select Task Manager if necessary)
    Activate the Processes tab, and see if there are still instances of Winword.exe in memory. End those tasks, then try Outlook again.

    By the way, if you have a computer problem, it is always wise to see if it persists after a shutdown and restart. A significant percentage vanishes...
