I've had a strange error message and crash on Word 2000 on a Windows 2000 machine. It's happened twice and I've never seen it on an office program before. It says
"MS Visual C++
Runtime Library
Program: {path to Office folder}winword.exe
Abnormal program termination.

My W2K setup has recently started to behave strangely anyway, with occasional seizures of the whole OS for a few tens of seconds, three or four times a day, which I didn't think was supposed to happen on WIn2k. Could this error msg hint at an answer?

I'm running an updated Sophos Virus checker on our small network and no other machines are reporting the prob.
Thanks for any hints anyone can give.
