Issues with Microsoft Office 2007

Excel 2007
Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Office
Microsoft Windows Vista
Microsoft Word
Office 2007
Windows Vista Home Premium
Word 2007
OS: Vista Home Premium Here's a list of the issues I'm experiencing - very strange behavior. 1. When I try to open a .doc or .docx file from Windows explorer, word opens up, but doesn't display the document - just the grey default screen. When I open up word, and then open a file up from there, it opens without a problem. 2. Everytime I close word, it gives me "Microsoft Word has stopped working". 3. I cannot click with my mouse within a document inside of word. I can click on any menu/toolbar options above, just not in the document. I can still move around with my keyboard. Cannot right click within document either. All of the above has just started happening 2 weeks ago, and I can't think of anything I've installed which would create a problem like this. What I've done so far: - Tried to repair install - Uninstalled and then reinstalled office - Installed SP1 for office Also - I can't associate the .xlsx file with excel - it doesn't give me the option in the "open with", and then when I browse and select excel.exe, it won't let me associate it. This has been happening for a while, so I think it's unrelated. I've searched all of the forums and haven't seen anything like this. Can anyone help? I'm in desperate need. Not sure if all of these are related, but any help would be appreciated.

You made a backup? If yes, then:
Start MSWord.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open.
Locate the folder in which you last saved the missing file.
In the Files of type list, click All Files. The backup file usually has the name “Backup of” followed by the name of the missing file.
Click the backup file, and then click Open.

Otherwise it is necessary to try only this way:

    I have a question for you, do you use an HP printer, and if so is that set to your default printer? I have seen almost the same behavior with computers with office 2007 and HP printers as default, if this is your case try to change your default printer to anything else and see if this still happens. Hope this helps. CG._

    I think there is problem with your MS office. The main cause for freezing computer system is corrupt documents. I can be due to virus attack or any other reason. to resolve your problem uninstall MS office and then install again. If you are getting this error only due to MS word file then repair it with word repair tool.
