    I installed MS Office 2008 on my MacBook about a year ago and all 3 apps have worked fine until now. All of a sudden, I can't use any of them. The app opens but it's just the toolbar that shows, nothing else. BTW, it's a licensed copy that's installed only on this Mac.

    I re-installed Office but got the same result :(

    Has anyone encountered a similar problem?

    there's been a bunch of updates.

    update patch is currently Office2008-1215UpdateEN.dmg i believe. maybe this could be the reason?

    Something strange going on. Now it's Finder and Mail that won't even open! With MS Office, its just the Top Menu Bar that shows. File, Open, Open Recent don't work.

    @Noy, try creating a new user account in System Preferences -> Accounts. Log in to the newly created account and see if the problems persist there. That'll tell us if the problems are system-wide or isolated to a single user account.
