Help Microsoft Works Words Procesor is freezing
As the title says my Microsoft Works Word Processor keeps freezing, I am to cheap to buy Microsoft Word. It only happens when I try to copy and paste something from the Internet. I get the message "Microsoft Works Word Processor has stopped working..."

Like I said it only happens when I try to copy and paste something from the Internet. Up until now it really hasn't been a problem because I rarely used it, but I had to email myself a paper I have due on Monday, but was unable to attach it because I forgot my USB Drive and I was unable to save it for a second so I could attach it because I was on my colleges computer. So I copy and pasted the paper into the body of my email thinking I could just copy and paste it into Microsoft Works Word Processor when I got home, but I am unable to, I can copy and paste it into Notepad but it isn't formatted right and it ends up looking like a big long one line paragraph.

Please help, I don't really feel like retyping it just so I can finish it and edit it.

Steps to solving Office crashing:

"If your computer is not starting normally, or if you receive errors when you start your computer that you cannot identify, you could consider performing a "clean boot." This operation starts the computer by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This can help you troubleshoot the problem."

When you copy and paste from the internet, there are links that need to go back to the internet to get the data, such a a image. These will need to be accessed each time the file is opened.

Are you connected to the internet when you are opening this file?

Yes I am connected to the Internet the whole time, it is only when I go from Internet to Microsoft Works Word Processor that the program freezes up, I can go from the Word Processor to the Internet with no problem.

Luckily a little Googling gave me a way to paste it in, but it isn't as fast, and still doesn't help me with my the program freezes.

Computers must hate me.
