Default Help! I'm getting error messages too much-can't open Resume Wizard

Okay, I was getting help from HP online support almost all day, but they
weren't able to help me. Here's my conversation so I don't have 2 re-explain
my prob 4 the millionth time. They told me to contact MSN, but MSN won't
help because it's an HP computer! Any advice would be MUCH appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Liz Bernhardt: (Sun, May 1, 2005 at 01:27:39 PM) Hi, I'm having trouble w/
my Microsoft Word, (from my "Works Suite 2002" software.
It first started when I went in to print out my resume that was saved on my
computer. I did the resume w/ the 'resume wizard'. When I opened it, a thing
popped up that said "Microsoft has encountered a problem and needs to close".
This has happened a few times in the past, and it usually recovers
everything...but not this time.
It saved all the writing but completely lost the format---which is
everything 4 a resume! So I tried re-doing the entire resume several times,
but every time I try to open resume wizard, the "Microsoft has encountered a
problem..." thing appears and there's no way of getting into it!

Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 01:29:46 PM) k
Hari K: (05/01/2005 01:31:30 PM) Do you have full version of Microsoft
Office Word installed from CD you have?
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 01:32:30 PM) Yes, I believe so
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 01:33:46 PM) It's the plain ol' Microsoft Word
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 01:34:11 PM) But it does have resume wizard
because I've been using it...until this prob occurred
Hari K: (05/01/2005 01:34:30 PM) Okay. I believe some of the system files
are corrupted. Follow these steps to perform a System File Check:
1. Click Start Run. Type 'cmd' and then ok.
2. You will see a prompt screen with a blinking cursor.
3. Type ' cd\ ' and then hit an enter.
4. Now type 'sfc/scannow' and hit an enter.
5. Scanning of the system files starts.
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 01:35:55 PM) it's scanning now
Hari K: (05/01/2005 01:38:03 PM) Okay.
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 01:39:48 PM) It looks to be about 1/4 of the way
done...it's taking a while, lol
Hari K: (05/01/2005 01:41:32 PM) OK.
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 01:50:35 PM) About 40% to go
Hari K: (05/01/2005 01:53:32 PM) Fine.
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 02:04:10 PM) Okay, it's done and it closed itself
Hari K: (05/01/2005 02:05:02 PM) That's great!
Hari K: (05/01/2005 02:05:02 PM) Now, restart the computer and check if it
works fine.
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 02:05:30 PM) Great, thank you!

has encountered a problem..." annoying thing. I kept trying, but it kept
happening.

Microsoft Application ?
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 05:52:42 PM) Just Word
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 06:03:14 PM) That same error thing happens
frequently in Word. It seems like it's been getting worse. But now, it's
happening everytime when I try to go into resume wizard.

access resume wizard started last night. I do get those "Microsoft Word has
encountered a problem and needs to close" thing frequently, but last night I
lost my resume that was already saved on the comp. I lost all the formatting
on it when I tried to recover it and resume wizard won't open.
Sam: (05/01/2005 06:46:14 PM) Okay, have you tried to perform a system
restore ?
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 06:46:48 PM) Is that the thing Harri had me do?
Can you see all the past messages?
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 06:48:09 PM) I found a "detect and repair" thing
in Microsoft Word. Should I do it?
Sam: (05/01/2005 06:49:14 PM) Yes please
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 06:51:52 PM) Okay it's done. So, I tried opening
resume wizard and the same error message came up again.

pops up saying "Internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to
close" Could these be related?
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 07:14:22 PM) k I'm on and doing what u told me 2 do
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 07:15:12 PM) "Uncheck the box for Display a
notification about every script error" ---It's already unchecked Does that
matter?

debugging" ---Both options (one for "other" and one 4 "internet explorer" are
already checked
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 07:16:49 PM) K done

Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 07:19:25 PM) I got the error again...still can't
get into resume wizard and my other Microsoft Word saved documents get the
error when I just enter them.
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 07:19:35 PM) Is my computer weird?
Sam: (05/01/2005 07:28:47 PM) Please stay connected to the Internet, while I
search in our database for a solution to the issue
Liz Bernhardt: (05/01/2005 07:28:53 PM) okay
