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.

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.

What I found out thru trial and process is that a couple of third party apps installed will cause the problem also, one related to word indirectly "Affixa" and one not related in any way that I can see "VisiPics". Thru process of elimination, uninstalling, one at a time is the way I found them.
Just today I installed a third party app, and upon restarting saw that the network printer was not on the toolbar. Investigated and word docs "Not Responding" once again, uninstalled app "AnyDVD Convertor Professional Trial" restarted and everything is fine once again.
Might trry this if none of the above will work for you.

Do you mean Windows Backup and Restore Center?
