why isn't microsoft word opening?

whenever i open a word doc, a box comes up saying something about starting in "safe mode", then disappears almost immediately. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Word and Office, but nothing is working. This all started after I tried downloading something that I originally uploaded, so I don't think it's a virus.

    after uninstalling, you should delete the Office folders in the following locations before reinstalling:

    Program Files

    Program Files (x86)

    ProgramData

    %appdata%

    %localappdata%

    if that doesn't work, you may need to run chkdsk on your C drive to fix damage.

    Windows is in Safe mode. It's for diagnosing and repairing windows. Reboot and make sure you don't go into Safe mode this time.
