My MS Office Word 2007 was working just fine until "UPDATES" from Microsoft were installed. Now Word crashes each time I try to insert a photo or when Iuse SAVE AS. Any suggestions on how to fix this

If you go into Control panel/Add_Remove programs & choose
Microsoft Office you get the option to 'Repair' - worth a try.

Thanks for the input. I initiated the repair process and it has been running for an hour. The progress bar is still in the same place as it was when I initiated the process. Is this normal? Do you think it is actually repairing. The system monitor says it is running.

Repair shouldn't take more than a few minutes - certainly not an hour.

I am having the same problem. The following things did not help:
1 - Ran Repair
2 - Uninstalled Word 2007
3 - Renamed normal.dot file
4 - Ran adaware

I have searched and tried just about everything that I can find online. Any ideas?

Actually, it only partially helped me. I can insert pictures from My Pictures but when I navigate away from that, then it freezes.
