Hi, Welcome to SF,

Did you upgrade from Word 2003 to Word 2007 or you remove and install word 2007 ?

The Steps you could try

1, Ran a Office diagnostic
2, Delete the Normal.dotm file ( Start %appdata% > Microsoft > Template > Delete all files under there ( Don't Shift delete them )

Hope this helps
