If this only occurs on a single machine, then it's not usually related to the database, but instead to the environment. As suggested above, try to repair or reinstall Office, and make sure that the installation if fully up to date.

Same with Windows - be sure it's fully up to date.

You could also potentially have hardware issues, but that would cause issues in other programs as well.
