Yesterday when I tried to insert page numbers to the document, an error message saying “Error: Word cannot open this document template (C:\ Users\...Building Blocks.dotx)”. Any idea about this?

Sorry to hear your Office does not work well. Try this to troubleshoot the problem:
Close Word. Locate and remove Building Blocks.dotx template in the User profiles. Be careful not delete the one in Programs folder. Then you restart the Word application, it will automatically recreate a new Building Blocks.dotx with default settings.

I have ever encountered such problem, and I searched for answers finally I got the working one.
1. Remove or rename the whole Office Registry tree from HKEY_CUREENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office
2. Restart Word
