My WORD won't open. Click on icon just returns immediately to desktop. Cures from elsewhere were hopelessly geeky or referred to places or boxes that I didn't have.Tnx

Will it start in Safe Mode?
1. On the Windows Start menu, click Run.
2. Enter the path to Word, such as C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Winword.exe, or click Browse to locate it.
3. At the end of the path, type a space, and then type /safe
Do your other Office programs start OK (Excel, for example)?

YOU DID IT!, my friend. I never heard of "Safe Mode". It had a drop-down with option for "m/s word" but that didn't work. But it DID open when entered per your suggestion. It had been so long since I seen it, I cried! But I still have a problem in that it won't open from icon, right?
How do I fix that? I owe you my first born or a pizza! Other OFFICE programs ok.

Which version of Office are you using?
PS Skip the first born - unless you'll take mine in exchange

This site has some suggestions (depending which version you're using):

Ref dreuby 1-25...
Using Office 2000. You didn't say how old your first born was...47? Maybe will stick to the pizza . Did you want anchovies?
Tried your "http" ref. When they ask does WORD close "immediately upon opening" do they mean one gets a 1-second flash of the WORD screen? Mine doesn't even get that before reverting to desktop.

I'd try those suggestions - programs usually have got quite a way down the "opening" route by the time they actually display anything. A corrupt "default" template may cause the problem.
