Default Word :mac 2008 is crashing all day long...

I just got a Mac Mini and am using MSWord für Mac 2008. It is really lousy, crashing all the time, can't handle major manuscript work (I'm in publishing). Is there something I should know about? What is going on? Is there anything I can do to remedy this?

Default What causes computer crashes

I'm not entirely sure what is causing your problem, but I have read that crashes in Windows are often caused by registry errors. I read it here: http://ezinearticles.com/?What-Cause...ash?&id=792856.

For fixing registry problems, I seem to be having good luck with Registry Mechanic by PC Tools: http://www.pctools.com/

Thanks anyway. I am working more with OpenOffice and find that it is a lot more powerful, if not quite as user-friendly.
