I had written something and then tried to save, and Word froze up and crashed. I had to restart it, and it had saved my old work. Half the time I could open that old work but was unable to save it, and half the time I couldn't access it.
At the moment, it's possible to open a saved document, but impossible to edit and save it without crashing the program. I can open new documents and type, and do basic things like bold the text, insert symbols, and create tables. However, if I try to save, Word automatically goes to (not responding) and can't be worked with.
My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite U305 with a Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium operating system (Service Pack 1). I bought the Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote). I'm not very good with computers but I'll do my best to keep up. Thanks for your help.
