Disable All Add-ins

Sometimes an add-in that gets installed automatically by another program (such as Adobe, etc.), might cause Word to crash. In this case, you can start Word in Safe Mode, which does not load any add-ins.
Simply click on Start and then Run or if you’re using Windows 7, just type the following command into the search box:
winword.exe /a
Now click on the Office button and click on Word Options. On newer versions of Office, click on File and then Options.
Disable add ons
Click on Add-Ins and then disable all add-ins and try to load Word again normally.


Install Latest Updates

If that didn’t work for you either, then you should try to download and install the latest updates for your version of Office. Sometimes it’s a glitch that is fixed when you install the latest patches and fixes.
In Windows 7, you can go to Automatic Updates from the Control Panel and find the latest updates. You can also visit the Office download center and download service packs for Office, etc.:

 Delete the Word Data Registry Key

  • There is a key in the registry that stores frequently used options in Word. If you delete the key, Word rebuilds it the next time you start Word by using the default settings.
  • You can delete the Word data key by going to the following location in the registry depending on your version of Word:


  1. Word 2002: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft \Office\10.0\Word\Data
  2. if Word 2003: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Office\11.0\Word\Data
  3. in case of  Word 2007: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Office\12.0\Word\Data
  4. Inside Word 2010: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Data
  5. and Word 2013: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Word
  6. latest word 2016: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Word
registry editor
Simply right click on the Data key and choose Delete. Now restart Word and see if the problem has gone away or not.

Uninstall Recent Software 

At this point, you have also think about any software or plugins that you may have installed on your computer. Annoyingly, this problem with Word can be caused by a program that is completely unrelated to Word!
Did you recently install some new hardware? A printer, scanner, label machine, web cam, tablet, etc.? Have you installed any software? If so, uninstall it and see if the problem goes away.
