The Detect and Repair feature can also restore the Word program shortcuts on
the Start menu. To do this, click Help, click Detect and Repair, and then
click to select the Restore my shortcuts while repairing check box.
If Detect and Repair does not correct the problem, you may have to reinstall
Word. The Reinstall feature in the Maintenance Mode dialog box completes the

file when the install file has the correct version and checksum.
Note The Detect and Repair feature does not repair damaged documents or a
damaged Data key in the registry or the Normal template.

automatically installs that file before starting the program.
