Word stops working when opening a document. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just build a new system and installed Office 2010 on it. Whenever I try to open a Word document that was created by on the older that was using Word 2010 I first get a message that "Word automatically saved changes to the Normal document template. Do you want to load it?"  It doesn't seem to matter if I click yes or no.  Next I get a Microsoft Word box with the message: " Microsoft Word has stopped working".  I am given a choice to either Check online for a solution and restart the program or to restart the program.  If I un hide the details i get this information: 

    Problem signature:

    It dose not matter what the document contains as formatting but in testing on over 50 documents I always get the same results.  

    Any help would be appreciated.   THanks.
