I am running MS Office 2007 (student edition)
When opening a word document it has started freezing on the word splash screen. I then get the error "There was a problem sending the command to the programme"
The only way to get rid of the splash screen is through task manager and kill the process.
I have unistalled office and re-installed then updated with SP1 and 2 for it.
I am still getting the same error. All other office applications are working fine.
It is doing this for both .doc & .docx formats.
