[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Question: [SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

Regards

Answer: [SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.
Regards

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

I'm using Windows Xp on a network with Microsoft Word 2002.

I have one document of about 48 pages. Whenever I want to copy paste within this document or from this document to another document, Word freezes. It does not give an error message.

When I email it to someone else, they can open it and copy paste just fine. If they modify it, save it, and send it back to me, I still can't copy paste form it.

The IT guy reinstalled word, reformmatted my computer. no luck.

I went into the registry and deleted the Data files , as was recommended on another website, no luck.

I couldn't find my normal.dot file, so I didn't do anything with that.

EDIT***
Let me just clarify something - I can copy paste just fine from all other documents.

While copy paste seems to be the fastest and most reliable way to make Word freeze (it happens everytime), A few other things have also caused a crash. The only specific one I can remember at the moment is CTRL-Z

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions!

Thank you!

I recently used Easeus data recovery pro to recover a book this guy was writing. He was using microsoft works to write his book. Upon trying to burn it to cd it suddenly dissapeared on him. I was able to bring the raw file back but they came back as word documents, (.doc) and not .wps extension that he was used to. Now it comes up when opening in word and in works, all jargon, stating this program could not be run in DOS mode, and wants me to select which encoding. My question is, are the files in any way repairable; being as they were corrupted during his attempt in burning them to disc and just simply disapeared. I have been at this for days and hate to keep spinning my wheels if this task is impossible.

Hi,
I have an odd situation, one of the emloyees in my office has WORD 2010 while everyone else has WORD 2003, this employee saves his documents in the word 2003 ".doc" format from word 2010.
Everything was working fine until recently all the employees have been getting a "Word was unable to read this document. It may be corrupt" when trying to open files saved from word 2010 in to the word 2003 format.
I also have word 2010 on my PC and I can open those specific documents without any issues, in order to temporarily fix the issue I have to open it and save it back in to the word 2003 format.
I read online that there's a hotfix for this issue, I've installed it but yet I'm still getting these messages. That employe with word 2010 also has some VBA code that automates some things in the document; but when I open VB in word, there seems to be no code listed in the document.
I know the obvious solution would be to update word, but my secretaries have a tough time with the new interface and it would create a serious slow down in our report output.

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Answer:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

Hi,

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word.

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.
 

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help". I cannot remember how I found this feature on my previous (W~2000) computer. -- Thanks

Hello,

I am trying to edit a large document about (69 pages) in Microsoft Word 2000 and also using endnote 5.0. The document constantly freezes and I have to Allt Ctrl Del to shut the document down. It only happens with this particular document.

I have turned off the option where Endnote loads up everytime I go into word.

There are no graphics in the document and I am using windows 98 O/S.

Can anyone please offer some advice as to why this would be happening.

Thank you.

Andrea.
 

Answer:Word 2000 Document Constantly freezes

Sounds like it's corrupt or just about.

Do you have Word XP available to you anywhere? It's "recovery" is better than prior versions, and it just might clear up the problem.

Sorry...never heard of Endnote.

The only other thing I can suggest is to clean up your hard drive, unless this occurs on other people's PCs too.

was twelve. We'd gone to see my grandmother in California, the last year before she died.^p

I've tried using the find/replace function... I tried finding the ^p and replacing it with nothing. It got rid of all the breaks and the document became one big block of text... this is not what I was looking for as I still want the breaks between paragraphs.

I've tried find ^p^? (^? being any character), it worked to rid of all the unwanted breaks between sentences, and kept the breaks between paragraphs... but of course... the first character after every break is deleted too...

What else can I try???

Or am I doomed to do this manually by hand.... it's a 200+ page document....

I am experiencing delays when I switch to a Word document. When I first switch to an open Word document from another Word document or another program, there is always a 4 second delay (hourglass) before the document becomes active. I have tried disabling and even deleting the couple of add-ins I have installed. This did not help. I tried adding memory, up to 2 GB now.

I may have several things open but I do not experience this sort of delay with any other programs including Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, etc.

Beyond the add-ins and memory, I have no idea how to attack this problem. Since I spend half the day working with these documents, comparing, editing and transferring data between them, it is frustrating.

So, my question is, how do I go about figuring out what the problem is?

My past file history for Word 97 under the File tab no longer works. NO previous files are listed. Also, whenever I start Word 97, it names the first document Document 14. Has the history file been damaged? Any idea how to get the history back?
 

Answer:{SOLVED} Word 97 - Document History

Richard, since no one else responded, I'm going to. I believe you may have a corrupt normal.dot file or, even more likely, a corrupt registry key. The easiest step to take is to rename your normal.dot file. When you launch Word, it will look for normal.dot and, when it doesn't find one, it creates a new, uncorrupt one.

If that doesn't work, you may need to edit the registry. Let us know.

So without getting too off topic, and I hope you guys don't think I'm just trying to post creepypasta or anything but I'd like to know if this is something that has ever happened to your computers before? I'm not a paranormal believing kind of guy or anything, and I'm hoping that there is a logical reason for the following happening based on the programming.

So my girlfriend thinks her house is haunted or something and she was having nightmares about killing her family last night, and when she woke up she experienced sleep paralysis and saw shadows moving around. Anyway, today we were discussing it on skype because she really believes this stuff, and alledgedly, according to her, her computer started acting weird and then shut off and turned back on without her touching it. But she said before it shut off, a text document - not an alert pop up - said "sorry...stop". Now, I don't really care for ghost stories or any crap like that, but I just think that it is strange that a word document had popped up instead of an alert, and that it had that text. Is that a protocol for any process on windows 7? Because I think that's quite odd.

Answer:Word document popped up, and then computer shut off

Before I would believe in a haunted computer I would believe she has be hacked. Sounds like some one has gotten in and has remote control over her PC. I would make sure you update all of your Anti-virus software. Download Malwarebytes and make sure it is up to date. Then do a full scan of each software to find any rogue programs.
Also sleep paralysis is a documented condition where the person awakens before REM sleep is over with. Paralysis and hallucinations are very normal with this condition. She should be evaluated by a doctor since this is a treatable condition.

Hi,

A friend of mine has MS Word 2003 and though it always used to work, a couple of days ago, it simply began to refuse to save anything. She is typing something for school, and when she tried to save the document, the "save" dialog box disappears for a second, then pops back up.......nothing else can work, of course, so long as that box is there........she tries repeatedly to save it, but it will disappear and reappear immediately each time. The only way she can do anything is to remove the name in the "name" area and then just click on the "x" at the top right of the dialog box. At that point, everything she's typed disappears and the MS Word page is blank again.

I've never heard of such a thing, but I'm not real familiar with the Office products. Does anyone have any idea what is going on and how to fix this?

I have fixed the problem and I offer a solution here.

First a description of the problem I was having: I would try to open a document by clicking on it on the desktop or from a folder in Windows Explorer and Word would open but the document would not. I could open the document from within Word.

BTW, there is a thread about this in the archives but the solution there didn't solve my problem (running winword.exe /regserver form Start/Run and deleting the doc key from the HK Root section of RegEdit) .

I finally solved the problem and maybe it will work for you. I uninstalled MoveOnBoot and Icon Packager, installed Registry Mechanic and let it fix everything, and then rebooted. Voila...problem solved.

I've had problems with Icon Packager in the past and am now going to classify it for my own purposes as a virus. As for MoveOnBoot by Gipo, it showed up as a tab in the program properties tabs which said to me that it was interacting with every programs startup.

Hope this helps.

When I use Word, normally there is a white area
representing the paper where I type and a blue
background. The white "paper" usually is about
two thirds the width of the window. The other third
is the blue background split equally on each side
of the "paper". So in other words, one sixth blue,
two thirds white, one sixth blue. The height of the
"paper" is the whole window from top to bottom. In
fact, it goes beyond the screen. I have to scroll down
to see the lower portion.

Above is what I normally see when I open a Word document.
But now, when I opened a new document, the white area was
about half its normal size. It's only about one third the width of

I'm running Microsoft Office 2003 under Windows XP Pro SP2, with all known patches/updates installed.

I recently completed a document in Microsoft Word 2003 and decided to make some changes.

I created a border around some text. I highlighted the contents of the box and then I moved the mouse up to the "fill color" tool on the menu. I clicked the tool and no colors appear in the drop down menu. The "fill color" tool on the menu shows yellow, but you cannot actually click yellow and use it fill the box.

When I click the "fill color" tool and the drop-down menu opens, the area below the "no fill" option shows empty white boxes with no color. This is rather weird behavior. I used the color option about one month ago and it worked fine.

I don't recall adding any programs to my computer or installing any updates [I don't know if any were installed automatically].

I know that by selecting 'header and footer' I can insert these, but it is a pain to have to do everytime I want to start a new document.
Having read another thread where the blank templete had been altered by mistake I took the advice and tried renaming 'normal.dot' to 'normal.old' but this hasn't made any difference.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've got a situation with one of my Word documents: Word 2003 will not print it or any part of it. I've tried printing other documents in Word, and they print fine. But this one will not, not even a portion of it. Rebooting, turning the printer on and off, I've tried everything and it has not worked. This is very frustrating; I am going to need this document in a short amount of time, and I am tired of figuring out what exactly is Word's problem.

I notice that when I go to print it, it sends the file to the printer queue, but then it is taken off without printing.

It can't be an issue with graphics--it does have pictures in there, but I've printed file after file loaded with even more pictures than this one, and it prints fine. Help, what on earth is Word doing?

P.S. my printer is a Dell 1320 laserjet.

I formatted the background black for a document. When I printed it out, the background was still white. I tried it again and checked all of the settings. What now???

Thanks for the help!

I don't know why, but I went to open a word document and got this instead: "Word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges...". I have gone through just about everything from the Microsoft knowledge base, to other forums. I have done just about all I can think of and still get the same problem. The only thing that I can remember doing recently with my word documents was to move them from My Documents to a new folder called "DOCs" inside of the "My Documents" folder. My other word documents on my F: drive do not give me the problem, so I'm pretty sure that it's not the program altogether. I'm guessing that somehow the files have gotten either orphaned or locked out for some reason. I can't locate my Office disc, if I need to re-install the program. I'm hoping that it is an easy fix that I am somehow overlooking. Any suggestions would be very helpful.
 

Answer:Solved: Word document access privileges

I figured it out and regained access to my files. What I did was to go to properties\security\Advanced. In the Permission tab I then unchecked the box that said "Inherit from parent the permission entries...". and then clicked Apply. I then went to the Owner tab and in the "Change owner to:" box, highlighted Administrators, and clicked apply also. I don't know if this was necessary, but everything seems to be working again.

Running Microsoft Office 2003 (11.5604.5606) on Windows Vista Home Premium.

First, any time I start an Office program, I am required to accept the license agreement, even though I have accepted that same agreement every one of the hundreds of times I've stated an Office program.

Next, when I exit Word, it asks me if I want to save the changes to normal.dot, every time I close Word.

Next, I can double-click on a Word document to open it in Word and Word says the document doesn't exist. I have no problem copying these same files to a flash drive and opening them on the same version of Word on another computer.
 

Answer:Solved: Word says the document I'm opening does not exist.

What happens if you open Word first and use FILE >> OPEN ??

Please help, we are renting a Dell computer from Rainbow Rental and it has all the latest bells and whistles the only problem we have is when we type a document in Microsoft word 98 and save that document and close-the next time we want to open the document we get a message saying the document is locked by another user 'Rainbow Rental' open as a read-only document or notify when document is not in use--and when we push the read-only button the window closes. Does microsoft word need to be re-installed. We also get a "normal.dot" template message as well. This is very frustrating because we have kids who do papers for school and unless they print print right then and there they can never get the document opended again. Please help us!

Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: microsoft word locked document

Call Rainbow and tell them their PC is a piece of junk. Actually, it's not the PC, but the software is poorly install and should have been tested.

Try Word troubleshooting, which CANNOT hurt:

In Microsoft Word 2010, I have two identical dates in different parts of the document. When I change the one at the top of the document, I want the one in the middle of the document to change with it. The dates are manually entered and do not correlate with the current date or anything like that. How do I accomplish my goal?
 

Answer:Solved: Two identical dates in a Word document

Use the search and replace feature. Enter old date, new date, select Replace All.
