computer running XP Media Center (Dell Dimension E510)

I have MS Office 2003 installed (Student and Teacher Edition), and it was working fine for months.

recently it started not opening documents. it shows the initial logo, and Windows Task Manager show the process "WINWORD.EXE" running, but the applications tab does not show Word running.

I have tried re-installing the Office package, but still having trouble

suggestions? thanks in advance.

turns out my problem had nothing to do with Word

I use Norton anti-virus software, and inadvertently installed AOL spyware software. That disabled the norton software, and the Office programs were trying to run a virus scan before opening any documents. Once I uninstalled the AOL spyware software, everything started running fine again.
