Default Cannot open Windows Word or Word documents

I've suddenly been having this problem: when I try to open the Windows Word
program or any Word document, it does not load. The program/document will
freeze at the beginning without loading and when I press control/alt/delete
to try to get out of it, I get the following message: The system is
dangerously low in resources. Would you like to terminate the following
application: Winword.
I have to restart my computer every time this happens. I've deleted my temp
internet files, emptied out the recycle bin etc but this does not seem to be
the problem. What exactly are "resources?" What is going on and how can I fix
this? Thanks for your time!

This problem is almost always caused by a corrupted Normal.dot template file
do a Search for all such files, and rename ALL found to Normal.JNK - reboot,
and try opening Word again.

Sometimes it's caused by a bad shutdown of Word - sometimes it just seems to
'happen'!. I know of no real defined cause.

Glad it worked for you, and thanks for the feedback - Good Luck!
