    Everytime i try to open up a saved word document, Word fails telling me that "Microssoft word has stopped working". It's ine when opening up new files but it can be annoying trying to open up a piece of work in progress.
    When i try to re-open after it crashes, word tells me that it would be safe to open up in safe mode. This way i can gain access to some of my saved work. But it's a very round-a-bout way of getting to it.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Open Word (in Safe Mode if necessary).
    Click the Office orb at top left and choose "Word Options".
    In the left pane, click "Resources".
    Click "Diagnose" button in the large pane.
