WORD, HEAL THYSELF
If you ever find Word acting oddly or documents becoming corrupted, consider running a program designed to find and fix Word problems. The program will guide you through a process of reloading your original installation CD.
To access it, open Word, click on Tools, Macro and then select Macros from the menu and choose Word commands.
Under the list of Word commands, select FixMe and then click on Run.
Then simply follow the instructions on the screen.
