Word 2007 keeps crashing in Vista

New Vista laptop with Office 2007 Pro and all possible updates installed, but word keeps crashing about 20-50 times during the day.
I have removed templates, installed service pack to office. I've tried to change settings on Word, but nothing seems to help.

Where to start?

Some events below...

Hello cmfsupport,

1. Reset MS Word toolbar template. With Word close, do a search for and rename normal.dot file. Restart Word and new normal.dot file will be created.

Check Tools - Options - File Locations - Templates. Note the location.  That's where Normal.dot is stored. To see it, you might need to tell Windows Explorer to display hidden/system files.

2. Check if an external program running in the background is interfering with Word. Check Firewall, antivirus, antispyware, antispam, and all Norton programs. Disable these programs one at a time.

3. Repair MS Word. With Word open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.

4. If no joy, reinstall MS Word.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Install/Uninstall.  A menu will pop allowing you to choose repair or reinstall.


Hope this helps!

It was the F-Secure Internet Security 2008. After uninstalling the software word, excel and other Office applications ran nicely.
