I have been trying, for a week, to create a blank document. Each time I do, when I choose the blank document, Word appears to start to do something on the web, and the software freezes. When I try and close the window, Microsoft puts up its "Windows has stopped working, looking for a solution" message box. That freezes as well.
Is this an artifact on me not choosing to use their "Cloud" service?
How can I get Word 2013 to work correctly?
