- "Microsoft Office Word has stopped working" on exit, OR
- "Microsoft is trying to recover your information"
Try the following fix:
- Open up Regedit. (Go to Start and type "regedit" in the search field and press enter.)
- In Regedit navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Data
- Right mouse click on the "Data" folder and delete it.
- Open up Word, close it, and voila, problem solved.
