Fix It: MS Office pops out "microsoft word has stopped working 2013"

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته 

Recently, I had the opportunity to install a MS Office Pro 2013 on this old lappie o' mine.

Installed perfectly. but there's one small problem, every time I tried opening a file or a blank template, the screen goes blurry then pops a notification "microsoft word has stopped working 2013"!

Then somehow in order to open a file, I had to open some other files first before clicking " File > Open > [search for file] "
A bit tedious, & defeats the purpose of simplifying things with a new software.

Nevertheless, as always, I just googled and found a solution to me and a 'possible' solution  to others. 'Possible' here means that due to the complex nature of modern computers, what worked for me might not work for you.
Nonetheless, nothing hurts by trying, no?

To start Word in its application safe, do the following:
Click Start, go to Programs, go to Accessories, click Run, type winword /safe.
If the application works fine safe mode, try disabling the add ins for the application and check the result,

  • Click the File tab.
  • Go to Options.
  • Click Add-ins.
  • Select or clear the options that you want.

In my case, i simply deactivated the "Send via bluetooth" option.

Simple but effective
