Default Dialog error on first opening of MS Word

When opening MS Word for the first I get the error:





"The command cannot be performed because a Dialog Box is open. Click on OK, then close open Dialog Box to continue."


There is no open Dialog Box open, as when I click on OK it goes to the file I wanted to us.


Hope someone has a suggestion, Uncle Dewey

First suggestion would be to get a later version of Word. 2007 has never been a good program. However, it should not be doing this.

You can try a repair. This may require access to the installation media and product key.

Hi Charles,



I tried the repair suggested, but it did not fix the problem.


Thanks a mil for your interest. Uncle Dewey
