WINWORD.EXE will not stop running proces

By M.A.S. Matrix ·
I am using XP pro and office xp pro. i am using word to edit email msgs. winword.exe process will not close after i send the mail so when i compose the next mail it says that winword.exe is being used by another program or can not be found. this is a constant problem of me having to manually end the process for every mail that i send. this just started happening about 2 weeks ago and it's driving me nuts because i can't figure it out. Please help.

How about a little more info?

What is the EXACT error message you are getting. Also, is there anything in Event Viewer? Have you installed Office XP Service Packs 1 and 2?

This is what the error says:

This form requires Word as you e-mail editor, but Word is either busy or cnnot be found. The form will be opened in the Outlook editor instead.

This happens every time I want to send an e-mail. The repairdidn't work. Tried that already.

Also when I end the process winword.exe and re-open Outlook and set it back to use word to edit html it does the same thing. When I end the process it for some reason takes the check out of the box 'use word as html editor'
