Insert Pictures in Word 2002--Won't work!

I can't insert pictures into Word 2002--not jpg, bmp, tiff,gif anything!
I've tried everything including opening them in Paint and trying to copy and
paste from there. Sometimes they stick for a second of two, or they stick
and I try to save the document and then when I reopen, nothing.

I just moved this copy of Word 2002 to a new desktop pc--entered the
registration key and everything seems to work fine, except the picture thing.
It works just fine on my laptop.

This new pc had a copy of Office 2003, which I don't want, and I thought
maybe the 60 day comp copy of Word 2003 was interfering so I removed all
that. No change.

The program seems to be fully functional otherwise. I have made all kinds
of documents, printed labels and envelopes from it, even printed to pdf files
with pdf995.

Anybody have any ideas? I am not certain I'm in the right place for this
request. If not, would someone please redirect me?

Thank you very much.

For Paul and John--

I installed Service Pack 3 for Office and some security patches that were
recommended with no change. Still can't insert a picture file of any kind.
I did post this in the Word Newsgroup--I didn't know about it--thanks for the
redirect.

But I have another question--my old computer has Picture IT! in the included
Works Suite 2003. My new computer has Works v. 8.0 and Picture IT! has
disappeared. I love that program--how do I get it back?? Can I install it
from my Works Suite 2003 CDs? If I try, will that mess up the v 8.0 that
came preinstalled in my new computer?

Thank you for your help. Microsoft MVPs make this whole thing worthwhile!

You should be able to do a custom install from your Works 2003 CD's to
reinstall PictureIt. No it shouldn't mess up Works 8 install.

I am having EXACTLY the same problem as benedict1. I have tried all of the
proposed fixes listed in these posts with no results. To benedict1, did you
ever get this fixed and if so how? Any help is appreciated.
