    Word 2007 not responding


    Help! Word keeps locking up and gives the mesage "not responding" This worked
    fine for 4 months and now suddenly it gives me this message when I want to
    ope a saved file or close word. I find this very annoying. This office
    program cost way too much money not to work. I have been told it could be
    templates, but I am not an IT speacialist, so I need more detailed
    information in order to fix the problem.
    Thanks to anyone who may be able to help me.

    You can test if it is templates by typing in Start Run

    winword /a

    If word works then it is templates.

    I had the exact same problem. I did as you suggested and sure enough, it worked. Do I have to Start Run winword /a from now on?

    Do you really think anyone is still monitoring this thread after a
    freaking year?

    Regardless of the age of the original post - this fix came up as 3rd on the list for Word 2007 not responding in Google.

    I purchased Office 2007 about 3 months ago and have had nothing but trouble with opening Word since. I downloaded patches and fixes that I found months ago and nothing has worked until now.

    typing "winword /a" worked!

    Thank you!

    If others have similar problems that don't get fixed, you may want to look at my post with a similar problem that got fixed easily. Look at Microsoft Word 2003/2007 "not responding" ............... posted 11/28/09.
