MS Word 2010 loops / copy Notepad text into MS Word document

September 29, 2013 at 08:46:48
Specs: Windows 7 Professionan
The problem occurred without warning after many previous instances of trouble-free copying of Notepad text into MS Word 2010. Here’s an example of what happens:-

1. I type a sentence into Notepad.
2. I then attempt to copy and paste it into an open MS Word file.
3. The cursor in the resulting MS Word file stops blinking on completion of the “paste” process. A few seconds later, MS Word indicates “not responding”.
4. I press CTRL + ALT + DEL to open the Task Manager.
5. On doing this and clicking on the MS Word document in the Task Manager and selecting “End Task”, a message box stating “ WINWORDC.EXE is not responding”, with 3 option buttons, pops up. One of the 3 option buttons is “Close program”.
6. When I click on “Close program”, another message box pops up saying “WINWORDC is trying to recover your information”. Then, a few seconds later, the MS Word document closes (but without saving the text copied from the Notepad file).

You could try the repair option to Microsoft Office 2010. To access it, go to control panel/program and features. Right click on Microsoft Office and select "change". Select "Repair" then continue. Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestion, which I tried just now - but unfortunately this had no effect. Something odd definitely going on here!
