  1. I have a problem with Word XP.
    When I open the document everything is fine, when I click the footer (for edit), everything is fine but when I click the last line in the Footer the CPU gets to 100% and Word freezes.
    This happens with 2 documents, with other documents the user can edit the footer without no problem. As far as I can see the last line contains only bold text (as Word freezes :D).

    Did a detect & repair, didn't help

    Someone has an idea ?

    is your word program updated with all the security updates?

    Why use word? USe openoffice. Free and compatible. http://why.openoffice.org/

    OpenOffice is out of the question due to company policy :( .
    And yes, Word is up to date :)
