    When things like this happen with any applications used on a mac it is best to simply delete the entire application and re-install it using your install disks. Sometimes the actually install disk(s) have an un-install option that you can use. Installing the program fresh after you delete it usually will put new preference files and other system information that will allow MS Word to function properly. Be sure you do not accidently delete any of your saved word files/documents. This should get MS Word functioning properly.

As for managing the installing of fonts in the future, try using Mac OS's own Font Book:
