Find and delete (normal template file). Word will re-create the file. A damaged normal template file can cause strange behavior.

Run a virus scan. If you don't have up-to-date anti-virus software try one of these 2 links:

If the suggestions offered above do not work, then go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel and click the Microsft Office 2000 entry. You will see an option to repair the installation of Office. Try that.

Good luck
