    I have Microsoft Office 2007. Sometimes it works, at least the first time I
    use it after i start my computer. The next time I click on Word or Excel, it
    opens to a blank screen. The toolbars do appear at the top of the screen.
    If I click ANYWHERE on the screen or the commands a blue bar appears at the
    top of the screen which reads "Document 1 - Microsoft Word" and I get the
    hourglass. If I do nothing but wait that hourglass just stays on the screen
    forever. the only way out of this is to click the 'X' in the upper right
    hand corner. Then I get the message "This program is not responding". I
    click "End Now" and get the "choose to end nonresponding program, etc, etc
    This is very frustrating and time consuming. Sometimes rebooting my
    computer corrects the problem, sometimes not.

    you might try booting into
    safe mode and see if
    office performs better this
    environment.

    if so, then there are a
    couple of things you can
    do.

    Try starting Word in Safe Mode (hold down CTRL as you click the icon) and
    see if the problem persists.
