Well, this was way back when I first got FS2k2, about a year ago. That's about the time when Word quit working. It just goes to show you how much I use word--a year later and I'm finally doing something about it!
Well guys, I think I've got this one figured out. I still couldn't get word to work, so I just decided to give up on it. I uninstalled Word, and installed Corel Wordperfect. Now all my word-processing related woes are over.
