Default WORD constantly opens then immediately freezes

Simple facts;

I'm running MS Office Home & Student 2013 on a Windows 10 laptop.

I'm trying to use WORD but all I can do is open the programme before it completely freezes.

I can open a saved doc but not edit is as the cursor doesn't move and all options - Font / Paragraph / Styles etc. are greyed out.
I'm only able to close it via the Task Manager.

I've checked the Add-Ins under "Manage COM Add-Ins" but only have one INACTIVE OneNote showing, the others being disabled

Any ideas on what to do would be a real help.

Close Word and run the Task Manager in Windows.
End any instances of Winword.exe that may be running.

There can be Add-Ins beside COM addins (although the COM ones seem to cause a disproportionate share of problems).
