I just installed Office Home & Student 2007 on my Sony Vaio Laptop, and Word just stops responding for no reason. Also, when I try to open documents I've saved on my desktop, I get the error message "Windows cannot find" at this Windows garbage. David BThe fact it is not 'seeing' docxs on the Desktop suggests that this may also be a third party add-in that is incompatible with Office 2007. Try testing Word in Safe Mode. From Start, Run (Winkey+R), type in winword /a and press enter. Test Word for a while and see if that has stopped the Not Responding
on my recently acquired Windows 7 Netbook and Excel and Powerpoint appear to be working properly, but Word 2000 either starts up without showing any toolbars and then stops responding or, if I open it by double-clicking on a doc file, it does show the toolbars but not the file content and then also stops responding. I ran an Office Repair and it said it was successful but the problem persists. Perhaps Word 2000 doesn't work under Windows 7?

) a few weeks ago only to find that Word stops responding when I try to open it. Eventually I see text from the doc, but I am unable to edit it. Sometimes the text disappears and I am left with a window "frame" with just the title of the doc at the top of the screen, nothing else not even the Word menu of commands.

Hi This problem is driving me crazy. sometimes when I close a Word 2002 doc it crashes and stops responding. What can I do to fix this?

on a P4 Toshiba laptop running their version of Windows XP, after uninstalling Office 2000 Professional. Word seems to run OK, except when you click on "Format" on the standard toolbar,and then "Font", or click directly on the Fonts key on the Formatting toolbar.
