Word from Office 2003 (SP3) crashes when closing Outlook on Windows 7

Last Modified: 2013-02-17
On a new Win7 (32-Bit) Laptop I´ve installed Office 2003 Pro and Office SP3.

Now, when I close Outlook, a window open stating Word has discovered a problem and must be close / restartet. After some seconds a new Word windows is opened.

I´ve tried a complete uninstall and re-install of Office 2003 but the problem is still there.
I´ve deleted NORMAL.DOT, but again - problem is still there.
I´ve done a new users-profile (with admin-rights) - problem is still there.
The default printer is a locally installed printer with actual printer-driver from Microsoft Update.

Any help, what I can try ?
