Thank you for writing back with that information. Are you getting any error when Word fails to run? Or is it just freezing?

When we call it up, the Word screen comes up but locks and even the mouse pointer does not work.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
None of the functions will work then and to shut it down we have to use Alt, Control Delete and got to Task Manager.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Should be go to not got to.
Microsoft Office Technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

Ok. Have you tried to run it as Administrator? Please give it a try using the steps below:

  1. If you have a Word shortcut on the desktop screen, right click on it, click Run as Administrator
  2. Or type "Word" on Cortana search box, and in the results, right click on MS Word, click on Run as Administrator.

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question

Corrupt files found...Was unable to fix some...Listed in C:Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
Not supported n offline servicing.
Will be repaired with reboot.
Rebooted, Word still does not work.
Microsoft Office Technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

Ok. You mentioned that you did an uninstall/reinstall of this software. I suggest that you perform a cleanup using CCleaner first, especially the registry cleanup and then restart your computer and test MS Word.

Do you have CCleaner installed?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I do not have CCleaner.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Why does Excel and Outlook work on the lap top but Word will not?
Microsoft Office Technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

That is the problem we are trying to troubleshoot.

Please download and install the free version of CCleaner using the link below:

Ok

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I down loaded and ran CCleaner cleanup and registry cleanup. Tried Word before a reboot and after with the same results.
I was hoping you had some idea as to what the problem was. However, I think we have to give up.
Please destroy the record of my credit card.
Thank you.
Microsoft Office Technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

Can I remotely access your computer so that I can directly check and fix the issues while you watch on your screen? I can help you better in this mode and all fees are refundable if the problem is not resolved.

Remote access (Secure Remote Assistance) is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee regardless of how long it will take me to fix the problem. We can resume any time without additional cost. It is safe as you will be watching your screen and we can chat right there, and it will be a faster mode of help.
Please let me know if you want this remote option.
Best regards,
Jess

I hesitate to let any one take control of my PC. I have had some bad experiences in the past. Based on that I would rather just give up for now.
Microsoft Office Technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

Ok, I understand and respect your decision and I am sorry if I was not able to help.

Here is the link about refunding if you want to process your refund:
