Unable to open normal.dot

By jhazard112 ·
This one should be interesting. I have an issue where everytime I open word it either crashes or gives me "Unable to open Normal.dot." Office 2003 is so much fun. So go through the typical troubleshooting steps. D and R, deleting Normal.dot file, the file recreates but I get the same issue everytime. So now I'm thinking MS is just creating a bad template. If anyone has any suggestions let me know.

Are you using Office add-ons?

They tend to cause problems.

If TK's solution doesn't work, and you use add-ons, uninstall add-ons and the office add-on engine. If you need to do so, reinstall the add-on engine, then the add-ons, one at a time. When you find the one that breaks the template, don't use it.
