    i've noticed that this happens if it is the first time that the app has run - more of an annoyance than anything else.

    This happened at our install when we had imaged the PCs but not copied over the default NTUSER.DAT file - a rebuild with the correct .dat file sorted it.

    @Russ: Since you're using the evil CC3 with its roaming profiles, try deleting the profile and receating it.

    Simply using a Default User profile would mean that you could just update your default profile.

    Would that still be the [local] profile Russ? - does it happen with all users on the PC, including local admin?

    Could be corrupt file association... Check the 'advanced' settings against a working XP PC with same version of Word.
