I have an Asus VX6, with Windows 7 and Office 2010 Starter preinstalled. The problem is very recent and I do not know if that generated after installing one of the system updates as I can't imagine any other cause. Word 2010 Starter has a major freeze after I open the program, just as I write something and then click on "return". That's where I get the problem. At this point a message would appear saying that an installation of additional modules be in progress (I don't know what this message would be in English). After this major freeze, requiring sometimes the ctrl+alt+canc command, the program would run relatively smoothly.
Thank You for your help.
