OS: Vista Home Premium
Here's a list of the issues I'm experiencing - very strange behavior.
1. When I try to open a .doc or .docx file from Windows explorer, word opens up, but doesn't display the document - just the grey default screen.
When I open up word, and then open a file up from there, it opens without a problem.
2. Everytime I close word, it gives me "Microsoft Word has stopped working".
3. I cannot click with my mouse within a document inside of word. I can click on any menu/toolbar options above, just not in the document. I can still move around with my keyboard. Cannot right click within document either.
All of the above has just started happening 2 weeks ago, and I can't think of anything I've installed which would create a problem like this.
What I've done so far:
- Tried to repair install
- Uninstalled and then reinstalled office
- Installed SP1 for office
Also - I can't associate the .xlsx file with excel - it doesn't give me the option in the "open with", and then when I browse and select excel.exe, it won't let me associate it. This has been happening for a while, so I think it's unrelated.
I've searched all of the forums and haven't seen anything like this. Can anyone help? I'm in desperate need.
Not sure if all of these are related, but any help would be appreciated.
