I uninstalled Word trying to correct a problem. Now I cannot get it to reinstall from the original disk. It goes through the steps but doesn't show up any where. I can open the files that were generated in Word but not the program itself.

Hi John,
Have you looked in the "All Programs" option from the "Start" menu?

When you open a Word file, what does the Title Bar say the program is that opens it (example: Your file name.doc-Microsoft Word)?

When you open a file, try clicking "File" on the Menu bar, then "New" on the Drop Down menu. If it opens a new blank document, Word is installed.

Are you looking for a shortcut on the desktop?

Let us know.

Thanks for responding Terry. It does not show up in the program list. When I open a Word document from My Documents it shows WordPad at the top in the Title Bar.

When I open New from File it opens WordPad.

There isn't a shortcut anywhere. There use to be one in the Start Menu as well as the Desktop.

I finally got Word to install by installing Works first, even though I hadn't messed with it. Word still opens a way too slow but at least it opens. Thanks for all.

wolfjrl, do you perhaps use Norton antivirus or systemworks? I see there are several complaints of Word slowdowns associated there.

And here is an MVP (Microsoft Valuable Professional) page, with some more suggestions:

Thanks Mick for your input.

Yes, I do use Norton AntiVirus. However I have for years and my word problem just started about 3-4 weeks ago. I timed it today and it took 3 min 45 sec to open. Programs within works open much faster from My Documents and a new word blank will appear much sooner if I open a file first there.....?????
