    I have a computer with Windows 98 as the operating system.

    If I try to open a Microsoft Word document it will not open it.
    I can right click and print it but that's it.

    If I try and open the document or open the Word program Word pops up for a second and then disappears.

    Never had this problem before with this computer.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

  2. i'm not saying this is what your problem is, but...

    if you have a pirated version, it might start and close immediately. i might know someone who used a pirated microsoft excel and they said it would start up and then immediately exit after they did some microsoft update. you said it hasn't happened before, but did you recently do any microsoft updates?

    if you have a legitimate copy of word/office, try reinstalling it.

    also, try searching google or something.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I do have a legitimate copy of Word,it came on the Gateway computer.
    If I do reinstall it,will I still retain the Word documents saved?
  4. yes.. but just to be safe you might want to make sure your word files aren't saved in some folder that may get deleted. just copy all your word documents to some other folder before you reinstall it. i think you'd be fine, but if you have important files, taking this extra step wouldn't hurt.
