O.K. So my son decided to download a game from Nick.com and how every time I try to open word it goes to this install screen for a nick.com game. I have uninstalled the game from the control panel but no luck. Every time I try to open a word document it goes right back to the install screen for the game. Any suggestions would be helpful and appreciated.

Wow! I can't get mine to do that.

I probably have an older version of Word. But try this. Open Word. Click on the Open thingy that looks like a file folder in the toolbar, that you use to open files. If it has a row of buttons alongside, click on the My Documents one instead of "Web" or whatever it's set on.

Or try this.

Start Word. Then navigate through Tools > Options > FileLocations
Any reference to that site there?
I'm thinking a person, malware or whatever may have changed something here, quite possibly through a macro implanted in Word, a known MS issue unfortunately.
