This can happen after installing adobe acrobat or some other program that installs templates in the word startup folder. to resolve this go to c:\program files\microsoft office\office 10\startup make sure there are NO templates in this folder. If you see any move them to another location and try word again it should work without a problem. Also, Usually you can go to the software vendor's website and download a replacement template.
