    I'm not able to open microsoft word anymore? the little square opening screen comes up, but it sorta just freezes and never really opens. I have to write a paper for tomorrow, so does anyone have any ideas?

    Do you have an Office XP CD? If so, try re-installing it. If not, see if you know anyone with a XP on disc.

    Reboot, and do a repair from the "add/Remove Programs" screen. As canopener suggested, make sure you have the install disk handy, you may need it.

    I don't have any of that stuff near me now cause I'm moving Friday and it's all packed. I can't seem to do a viruus scan either. I guess my computer is in rough shape. I'll re-format when I move. and I guess I'll use my dad's comp for my paper tonight.

    If nothing major is wrong, you will be ale to a repair without the disk. Office stores a certain amount of info regarding your installtion on your hard drive for later anyway.

    Did you try a reboot? You can also check your task Manager to see if a Word is already runnig in the background and you don't know it.

    Weird. I usually find it under MS Office.
