    So i have a big problem. Im a college student, resultantly I rely on office. Today office decided to stop working. Totally randomly. None of the programs will open. They jump in the dock for about a second then disappear. I have gotten it to get to the point where it stays in the dock, but it wont open and I have to force quit it. Can anyone help me??

    I'd try repairing permissions in Disk Utility. Other options would be to trash the preference files or a reinstall of Office.

    I tried to repair the permissions and that didn't work. Where would the preferences file be? I don't have the disks with me(one thing i left at home), is there anywhere I can just download the program and get the serials from my parents over the phone?

    Do a spotlight search on

    word.plist
    excel.plist
    etc.

    Move them from their location to the desktop. Try relaunching app. If all is OK, then trash the plist files on the desktop.

    No luck with the preferences. Any other ideas?
