if I unmark the option ms word would not start, however, if I mark the option to recover my work and restart ms word another message would show up thereafter,
If I choose yes ms word would start in safe mode, and if I choose no the first message would show up again unless I either unmark the option in the first message or choose to start ms word in safe mode...
I tried searching the internet for some solutions and even stumbled on this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888950/en-us but I don't have McAfee as my anti-virus. I also tried deleting the entry in the regedit with the following address: HKEY_USER_CURRENT\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\OFFICE\10.0\WORD\DATA since my version of ms word is 2002. But still I was not able to fix the problem. Another thing I found out that if I type winword.exe /a in the run from the startmenu ms word would start in its normal fashion.
Any suggestions would be of much help.
