Word 2002 closes with certain files

By egoldini ·
I?ve been having the message "microsoft word has encountered a problem and needs to close" with certain files that have around 30 pages. It usually happens with files that have the same data in other files. Sometimes, if I delete files that have the same data, then the file works fine (i.e if I have two files: and and they share similar data, if I delete one of them, the other file SOMETIMES works fine) I?ve tried looking for in order to rename it but they system doesn?t find it.

wow, that is weird. i would give deleting a try also. could it be your system is not finding it because you are forcing the find to look at hidden and system files? i believe that is under advanced in find in the find i mean fine print
are you up to date on all your office and windows updates. that is always worth a try. and do you have option of office repair from Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add Remove/Office/repair

Delete any file that start with a tilde (~).
They're almost always temp files and can confuse Word.
