    Something`s wrong with MS Word 2003 as well as with Word 2007. When I start the app it warns me that "Word could not create the work file. Click the temp environment variable". When I click OK it opens the app though.
    PLUS - despite "Save" button/option is still in there (isn`t inactive or hidden), but save option just doesn`t work. When I choose Save or Save As it just doesn`t even attepmt to save the document. Nothing happens at all and only way for me is to close the app. (Now OO is installed, but it isn`t the decision). I`ve read all MS advices about macros` viruses - not any virus or malware has been detected. Tried to uninstall both versions of Word and install them back again - no success.
    Any advice will be waited alot. Sorry for weak Englash.
