I have been using Word 2008 for Mac 12.1.0 for 4-5 weeks now. Occasionally, Word freezes and has to close. (Lately, it is more frequent than occasional.) Sometimes the whole computer freezes (I have a 24-inch iMac with 4GB RAM). I notice that when I re-open Word after a freeze, at least one of my settings has reverted to its default vaue. It's the setting for automatically saving documents as I work. The default is every 10 minutes. I set it to every minute. This is important, because I have to rely on the recovery document when I re-open Word. Anyone having similar problems?
