Microsoft Word 2007 automatically quits when editing a document, of course not allowing to save any changes. This forces me to try to auto recover the file(s), and when doing so and opening the file to work on it, it closes out again. Um, kinda frustrating. Please help. Thank you. Have latest version of Antivirus. Windows Firewall is disabled.

Hello,

I was having this same type of issue and had to go onto Microsoft website to download the latest fixes for 2007.

Run the application in safe mode and see if this continues. And I mean boot to windows normally, but open the application itself in safe mode by either going to the run line and typing word /safe, or go to start, programs, hold down the control key and select word and answer yes to the prompt to start in safe mode. If the problem does not occur with Word in safe mode, then check the com add-ins. Disable all of them and re-enable them one by one to find the offending one/s.

    Yup did that and got the SP3, rebooted a few times too. Ran the update again to make sure. Good suggestion, but still didn't resolve. It's becoming more rampant now, though intermittent, and spreading to more users in our network. We do have a group policy running via Active Directory. Any others?

    Windows XP has SP3, but Office 2007 is only up to SP1. Make sure you have both. I'd suggest disabling the antivirus.
