Problem with Word 2k plug-ins


Senior member

For a week or so, attempting to run Micorsoft Word causes a general protection fault and locks up the machine. I have already attempted to both reinstall and repair office, with no success.

After searching the Microsoft knowledge base, I found a switch (/a) which allows Word to load without plug-ins, which is successful. Unfortunately, the page does not include methods to identify the problematic plug-in.

At this point, I have created a shortcut which includes the switch, so we are able to use Word. Any help in identifying and repairing/replacing the problem would be greatly appreciated.
