I usually get this error-prompt box every time I attempt to open a Word file through double clicking on it. Does anyone here know why this is happening or what is causing this?
Microsoft Word has stopped working
Windows is checking for a solution to the problem…

This sort of problem is apparently caused by problems in the system registry. The fix for this problem is actually rather lengthy so I will post this link from Microsoft Support site:
There is actually an automated fix via Microsoft Fix It but you can also opt to do it manually by deleting the following registry keys.
The "10.0" is for Office 2002 only. For Office 2003, 2007 and 2010, replace it with "11.0", "12.0" and "14.0" respectively.
However, the fix is very complex so I urge you to use caution and backup the registry prior to following the procedures.
Hope this helps!
