Repairing Word Installation Errors
If your copy of Word 2000 seems to have a few unexplainable bugs, a last-resort solution to your problems might be to check for installation errors. Word 2000 comes with a module for checking its own integrity. (Ah, what a feature--wouldn't it be nice if our politicians came with such capabilities?) First, shut down any other running programs, then choose Help, Detect And Repair. Click the Start button, and Word will give your installation a look to see whether it finds any problem. Be warned that this process takes at least 20 minutes to complete, so don't run the Detect And Repair option if you're in the middle of something important.
