For a while now I have been having a minor but irritating problem with WORD (Word 2007, part of Office 2007 Home and Student). every so often Word will become "Not Responding" and the computer seizes but after a short while, typically 10-15 seconds, things return to normal with no obvious after effects. However just recentlythe problem has become more serious, in that now sometimes when Word becomes "Not Responding" it does not return to normal and the computer becomes totally unresponsive (mouse not working, Keyboard not working)and I have to power down the computer and power up again.
Any advice would be very welcome.
Do I need to uninstall and reinstall WORD?
Could this be an OS problem? My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium.
Thanks in advance.
