Word crashes when I try to open a document or email attachment by double-clicking on the file. If I open Word afterward, it starts in Safe Mode and then I can see the document that I tried to open. If I close Word and repeat this process, the problem continues to occur. I uninstalled and reinstalled Word and I am still having the problem.

Sounds like an addin issue.

Delete or disable unwanted addins from word and outlook

It was apparently the Adobe Acrobat X Standard Add-In or the 'Send to Bluetooth' one (those were the only two active add-ins I had. I disabled them both and now it works again.
