Reset Word 2007 Options

Is there an easy way to reset all Word options (without reinstalling) back to
the Microsoft default...just as they were when Word was first installed?
Thank you.

Rename the normal.dotm file, the Building Blocks.dotx file and the Word data
key in the registry -
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\W ord\Data. Word will
recreate defaults when started.
