MS Word 2000

By scadetski ·
Word 2000 has suddenly stopped opening as well as all of its related files. It flashes briefly up on the screen and then disappears. Have tried removing and re-installing it and repairing it using original disk but nothing has helped.

Delete all temp files Word leaves around. they start with a tilde (~).
Delete/rename Normal.dot.

This may sound silly but did a file search for Normal.dot but nothing came up, where do I find it? Also, where would the temp files be located.

Try look up in folder options under control panels.Go to view and check if show hidden files and folders is selected. If not,please select it and run search for normal.dot again.
