Anytime I open Msft Word, mayhem happens. It takes a while to open, and any move I do, I see the “not responding” up top and the screen goes a soft gray color. Then after a few times of this, it asks if it can shut it down.

Can you try run a repair of Office by going into Programs and Features.

Does this happen with any other office apps?

I had a similar problem and ultimately fixed it by uninstalling and reinstalling.  Try the fix procedures recommended by GrahamSkan.  If that doesn't work, try running Word in safe mode (this method works for all Office programs):

If Word works fine in safe mode, then the issue is a plug-in.  Disable all plug-ins and re-enable them one at a time.

If it does the same thing in safe mode (which is what happened to me), then uninstall and reinstall Word.
