Multimple 2007 WinWord processes

By stile777 ·
Has anybody else run into looking in the running processes and seeing multiple instances of WinWord? I thought it was strange when I opened Word to find it was the 3rd one open! And in reality it was the only visible one open. Which meant that 2 others were open somewhere. I opened Task Manager and saw not just 1 or 2 but 6 winword instances running long after they were supposed to be closed!!

Run a detect and repair

because it appears that Word is not closing properly.
If it still fails to work -- reboot.
If it still fails try downloading and installing UPHClean from Microsoft (User Profile Hive Cleanup Utility)

In Outlook, go to Tools, Options, Mail Format and Disable Microsoft Word as the Editor. Click OK.
