Does Your Word 2007 Crash and You Can’t Use Mouse?
I just experience this problem recently where Word 2007 running on Vista Ultimate kept crashing. I was able to start it but couldn’t use the mouse (e.g. couldn’t highlight words or right-click). On closing Word it will crash with the following error:

I tried the Office Diagnostic but that didn’t help. Then I used System Restore but that didn’t solve the problem either. I started Word in safe mode (winword /a) and that worked. As a temporary workaround, I created a shortcut that runs Word 2007 with /a switch (safe mode) until I figure out exactly what’s causing the problem.
