If Detect and Repair does not correct the problem, you may have to reinstall Word. The Reinstall feature in the Maintenance Mode dialog box performs the same action as Detect and Repair, except that Reinstall copies a file when the files are of equal versions. Detect and Repair does not copy over the file when the installation file has the correct version and checksum.
The Detect and Repair feature does not repair damaged documents or damaged data keys in the registry or in the Normal template. If a file that Word uses at Startup is missing, the Windows Installer automatically installs that file before it starts the program. In Word , run the Microsoft Office Diagnostics feature. This method is a moderate mode of repair. If this method does not resolve the problem, you may still have to reinstall Word.

To prevent formatting changes, AutoText entries, and macros that are stored in the global template Normalm.
Renaming the template lets you quickly determine whether the global template is causing the issue. When you rename the Normal. These include custom styles, custom toolbars, macros, and AutoText entries.
We strongly recommend that you rename the template instead of deleting the Normal. If you determine that the template is the issue, you will be able to copy the custom styles, custom toolbars, macros, and AutoText entries from the Normal. Certain types of configurations may create more than one Normal.

The second and the third type of passwords were developed by Microsoft for convenient shared use of documents rather than for their protection. There is no encryption of documents that are protected by such passwords, and Microsoft Office protection system saves a hash sum of a password in a document's header where it can be easily accessed and removed by the specialized software.
Password to open a document offers much tougher protection that had been steadily enhanced in the subsequent editions of Microsoft Office. Word 95 and all the preceding editions had the weakest protection that utilized a conversion of a password to a bit key. Key length in Word 97 and was strengthened up to 40 bit.
However, modern cracking software allows removing such a password very quickly — a persistent cracking process takes one week at most.
Microsoft Office 2007
Use of rainbow tables reduces password removal time to several seconds. Some password recovery software can not only remove a password, but also find an actual password that was used by a user to encrypt the document using brute-force attack approach. Statistically, the possibility of recovering the password depends on the password strength. Nonetheless, a password can be fairly quickly picked with brute-force attack, because its speed is still high regardless of the CSP selected. Moreover, since the CSPs are not active by the default, their use is limited to advanced users only.
Word offers a significantly more secure document protection which utilizes the modern Advanced Encryption Standard AES that converts a password to a bit key using a SHA-1 hash function times. It makes password removal impossible as of today, no computer that can pick the key in reasonable amount of time exists , and drastically slows the brute-force attack speed down to several hundreds of passwords per second. Word's protection algorithm was not changed apart from increasing number of SHA-1 conversions up to times, and consequently, the brute-force attack speed decreased two times more.
BYTE in criticized the documentation for Word 1. It called the software "clever, put together well, and performs some extraordinary feats", but concluded that "especially when operated with the mouse, has many more limitations than benefits While the review cited an excellent WYSIWYG display, sophisticated print formatting, windows, and footnoting as merits, it criticized many small flaws, very slow performance, and "documentation apparently produced by Madame Sadie's Pain Palace".
It concluded that Word was "two releases away from potential greatness". It's like a Mozart or Edison , whose occasional gaucherie we excuse because of his great gifts". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
