The solutions offered by the link given by Broni should be tried even though they were written for older Office versions. I wouldn't do anything with the registry. Just uninstall and reinstall the printer.

If that doesn't help and if you have Office 2003 install it and see if things work better.Office 2007 is a huge program with it's own share of problems that most users don't benefit from.

Is it Word 2003, or 2007?
