Word 2007 - there was a problem sending the command to the program

I have this extrange problem; a user cannot open Word 2007, it throws an error "Microsoft Stopped Working" then when I close the window a popup shows "there was a problem sending the command to the program."
I reinstalled Office 2007, wiped the machine and reinstalled Office again and the problem comesback. when I reinstalled Windows 7 32-bit, it worked for a few minutes but then it stops working. it does it as local or domain user.

Please help!

If you reinstalled the OS, it seems likely that you re-installed everything from scratch.

However, it still might be worth trying the steps listed here:

I followed all steps on the KB article but it did not solve the problem. Here is the message I got from the Word Stopped working popup:
