Windows 7: Microsoft Word not opening

Microsoft Word not opening

Hey, my laptop overheated with Word open and the only way I could shut my computer off was to take the battery out and leave it and my laptop to cool down. When I put it back in my laptop just started running something called 'system restore' or something? It took a few hours to work and now my laptop works normally, except for word. Also I can't open anything to so with word, all my documents etc. So far I've troubleshooted the program, tried to run it by opening 'run' and I've restored my computer a second time but so far none of these have worked!
Any ideas that don't involve me deleting it and re-installing it? I need to keep my documents.
Any help much appreciated

Hi there welcome Seven Forums Which version of Word are you using ?

Go into the control panel Programs and Features

In the list of installed programs select Office /Word or what ever you have installed Then right click and select repair

Hope this helps
