Word 2010 Stops working if I am not connected to the Internet - all other office 2010 office products are fine and when I connect to the Internet Word will work fine as well.  I have tried to run the detect and repair and have also uninstalled and reinstalled the Office Suite.  I don't receive any specific error messages, just the standare Windows 7, "Microsoft Word has stopped responding". Please let me know if you have any suggestions.  Thanks

Strange as it sounds check your default printer.

I have seen issues where the printer kills Word dead when other applications are open.  Only solutions for this I have found to date are:

  • Try a different printer driver
  • Set the default printer to XPS / PDF or other none physical device

Can you turn off the Macros option within Words?  You might have a document that has been infected with either spyware or virus.

Try and let us know.
