    so i ran onyx disk defrag app while having a word doc open, and now word nor any other office app wont open. i would click on word, it bounce on the dock for a second or two, then disappear. nothing happens after! i think i really made a mistake, i tried reinstalling office but it does that exact same thing. i need help please, any would be appreciated!

    thanks in advance!

    I'd like to point out that, unless you're doing particularly strenuous work in OS X, there's really no reason any user needs to run maintenance utilities on their machine. Unless you do lots of creating/moving/deleting of files that are larger than 20MB, there's no need for you to manually defrag at all, as OS X does it in the background for you.

    You might still need to delete other support files and whatnot related to Office before re-installing it.

    In the future, don't run utilities unless you NEED to. Chances are, you don't really need to anyway.
