Word is freezing/crashing either at the time of copying/pasting images from web pages or afterwards as I scroll through the document paste the images.  It is happening on numerous documents.  There are many photos in these documents.  Is there any thing I can do to:

1. Prevent this problem from happening
2. Fix the existing documents that are freezing

Thanks.

Perhaps paste the image into MS Paint first and save to remove any metadata from webpage. Then insert via Word
