|Every once in a while, Office crashes when I exit.|
when I work in Word.
I take it, that only Word is causing you grief, none of the other components of Office?
How often is "once in a while"?
Is it only on a specific document or template?
Try deleting the Normal.dot file.
Close Word and do a search of your computer for normal.dot file and delete it.
If there is more than one, rename or delete ALL of them.
When you launch Word, it will look for normal.dot and since it can't find it, it will recreate a new clean one.
Be aware that the normal.dot file is a hidden system file and may not show up when you do a search for it.
If you are unable to find it,
Go to My Computer
Click the Tools menu
Choose Folder Options.
Click on the View Tab
Put a check where it says, "Show hidden files and folders"
and uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types"
and "Hide protected operating system files".
If you still can't find it, try looking here:
C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates
