This could be anything... Need more info to be of any help
This error simply means that winword tried to address a memory location to which it has no rights or which is in use by another process.
What were you doing, can you repeat the error, what is your config, etc ???

If this error re occurs.
I'd suggest you download servicepack 1 for MS office and see what happens.

Can't help you more unless you give us the whole story about what you hardware and software is.
