Windows 7: Word 2000 works on one pc but not the other

Windows 7 Pro x64
Word 2000 works on one pc but not the other

Any ideas what would cause this. I have 2 identical windows 7 pc's that I just setup. They are both running windows 7 pro x64. I installed office 2000 small business with sp1. One one machine word and excel will launch just fine. On the other machine, excel will launch but word hangs. I tried starting word in compatibility mode and as an administrator. That didn't work. I lauched it from the run command using the /a and it would start. I looked and there are no startup macros that run. I don't see why it would be fine on one but not the other since they are identical machines with the same config.

SimCity 2000 works on Windows 7!
I thought that this might be worth noting. I have tried Sim City 2000 Special Edition (released around 1995) in Windows 7 Home Premium x64. It ran perfectly even without compatibility mode on. The only problem I had was to turn 256-color compatibility on because the animations do not work in an RGB...
