Okay, is there a way that you can make a program not crash for absolutely no reason? I'm writing my thesis, or at least I "WAS" writing my thesis, when MS Word crashes. Usually, Excel is the one that crashes, not Word, so I was pretty bothered by it. Anyway, I have a 22 page thesis (single spaced) that I was working on, and now I can't open the file. When I open it in Word, the paper shows up and Word crashes immediately. If I go into the FINDER and double-click on the file from there, I get the same open-and-crash issue. If I open another Word file, everything is fine. Its just this one document. What am I supposed to do? Did I reach the upper limit of what MS Word can handle? Is it the file itself that's corrupt?? I'm hoping it isn't the file, since I've done lots of work on it over the past 3 days. I don't have OpenOffice (for Mac) because I don't know much about X11. What options do I have other than working on the file on one of the school's PCs instead?
