Word fails to start

When you try to start Microsoft Word, and receive the following error message:

Microsoft Word has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

You read the information given on the screen and click on the Send Error Report or Don't Send. In the following window, it asks you to start in safe mode or not. If you click yes, Word will start, but no add-ons. If you click no, then Word will repeat the error message again, until you close the Word in safe mode. How frustrating!

A solution to this nightmare is deleting the template file. It usually locates at
C:\Documents and Settings\your user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates on Windows XP.

If the solution won't solve your problem, open the template fold, and delete the redundant .dot files.
