I have a client running Word 2003 (MS Office Student Teacher Edition) under

XP. Word hangs at the Splash Screen. I deleted the Normal template, but that

does the trick for one launch only. The next launch results in a stuck splash

screen.

I have uninstalled and re-installed the program with same results.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
