    How are you trying to open it.
    Icon on the desktop, via the Start Menu or Quick Launch?
    If any of those then the problem is probably a broken association between the short cut and application.
    Open Windows Explorer and go to Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office.
    Look for and double click on winword.exe
    If it starts Word then the above is true. If not then you will need to reinstall office.
    If you can open any office application choose it's Help Menu and choose Detect and repair. Highlite the item than mentions shortcuts.
    Note this procedure will remove or change some of your settings in the following areas
    * The Assistant character selection
    * Most-recently-used entries on the File menu will be removed
    * The size of the application window for all applications
    * Menu and toolbar position and any customizations
    * The security level for each application
    * View settings within the application, such as the Calendar view in Outlook
    Your User Name and Initials will also need to be re-entered when you restart your Office applications.

    Alternatively each shortcut can be repaired manually.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
