A complete reinstall sounds very radical especially after going to the 
trouble of doing the updates.  Why not try moving, or renaming some of 
the preference files to try and get Word to make fresh ones with default 
settings.  This file looks like it might be a good place to start: 

Other things you might try are using a different document template, and 
making sure that you don't have white text on a white background giving 
the impression of a blank envelope!
