    I had this problem and solved it by making a change to the registry - please see below.

    *** PLEASE NOTE: I take no responsibility for any problems you may experience as a result of amending your registry in this way. Your own registry may differ from mine depending on your configuration. You should ALWAYS, ALWAYS back up your registry before making any changes***

    This is what I did:

    Delete the entire key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\Data

    The problem (in my case) was being caused by a corruption in this key. After it is deleted, it will be recreated automatically the next time you open Word, and the problem should no longer occur.

    Good luck!!
