I'm running Windows 7. don't have an older version of office on the computer. I DO have office 2010, with word. But I prefer to use Word 2007. The problem happens even when Word 2010 isn't running.
All of the Office 2010 programs open immediately. The only 2007 program installed is Word 2007. It's the only program that has this problem.
The reason why this happened is because you have 2 MS Word versions in your computer and Word 2007's default behavior is to check its setup environment when it launches. Using the method above, your Word 2007 will then open normally.
