    I'm having problems with Word 2003 on Windows XP. Sometimes, the Word documents won't open, and if they do, the computer freezes. I've had to restart the computer multiple times on safemode. Also, if Word does end up working and I start typing up something, the keyboard and the mouse will all of a sudden stop working. In general, the computer has been running super slow ever since I've had this problem with Word. I've run a spyware scan and a virus scan and I don't have anything. What could this possible be? Thanks in advanced for all your help!!

    Click on start, run.

    Type in winword.exe -a
    Hit ENTER.

    It works wonders, I hope it will work for you. ;)
