    word 2000 hangs

    Locked

    by imbpc ·

    When opening a word document in word 2000 the program hangs when I use ctrl
    +alt+del I get a error message- the system is dangerously low on resources- I have already renamed the normal.dot. File as suggested by Microsoft but that did not work. I also have uninstalled and reinstalled word 2000 but I still have the same problem.

      Delete any temp files left by Word. They start with a tilde (~). In most cases you can delete
      ~*.*
      Start Word in :safe: mode.
      Winword.exe /a
      That will start word without Normal.dot or any add-ins. Then check Templates and add-ins if necessary
