I did as instructed but I can't check it without working on the document. The problem is this: I have the book and I'm editing and, say, ten minutes into my edit or fifteen Word just stops; freezes cold and everything that I've done is lost! I've never had this problem before when using the previous Word program and using Windows XP or 7--but this worthless piece of junk called Windows 8 is aggravating for those of us who actually work on projects and don't play games with those idiotic tiles linked to Facebook and who cares what the temperature is in Rome! Thanks for your assistance, anyway.

Pete,

Please reboot your computer first. Then go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features. Select Office 2013 and Repair it.

Reboot after repaired. Test Word 2013 again.

Please let me know how it worked out. Thank you!

It seemed to have worked. I've been editing for about 20 minutes and I had no problems with Word 2013. Thanks.

Thanks and have a great day!
