Default Office 2013 / Word Problem

Just installed Office 2013 H & S. Opened Word and got a notice that this feature is broken, go to Control Panel - Products and features to repair it. I closed the notice and Word opened. I activated it, no problem, and everything works. Closed it, tried it again, same message. Note...do not get this message if I open anything else just Word.



So I repaired it, opened it, got the same message, this feature is broken. But it opens anyway. Had to re-activate it again.

Any idea whats going on?

The issue is most likely due to a broken Word addin. That said, repairing Word shouldn't require you to reactivate it.

Try starting Word in safe mode (i.e. hold down the Ctrl key while stating Word). If the problem goes away, a broken Word addin is the most likely cause. Restart Word then disable all addins, progressively restarting Word and re-enabling one addin at a time, then quitting Word until you find the culprit at the next re-start.
