    It appears that you have been playing around with Word options. This is dangerous if you do not know what you are doing.

    I will suggest 2 things to correct this: run the FixIt program. If that doesn't cure things, find normal.dotx and delete it. This is the template for new docs and a lot of options are stored here. Word will create a new copy when it can not find the copy you deleted. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/921541/en-us?p=1

    Paste this at the Start button, navigate to normal.dotx and right click to delete:

    %appdata%\Microsoft\Templates

    EDIT: Third possibility- go to Control Panel as if you are going to uninstall Word. When you select the program to uninstall you will be offered a choice to repair the program. Do this.
