    Whenever I try to insert a new equation or edit an existing one in Word 2011, it instantly crashes. As an engineering student, this is obviously a major problem for me. Anyone know what might be going on? I've tried reinstalling already.

    Your problem is not normal. However, you have not given even a hint of anything abnormal on your system. Until you do, then the best that you can hope for are random shots in the dark.

    That's cause there isn't anything abnormal. ;) Absolutely no problems elsewhere in the Office software or the computer in general. I guess maybe the only "abnormality" is that I'm running an SSD, but that shouldn't affect anything.

    Microsoft has released a new update (14.0.1) that improves the equation editor:

    While this doesn't appear to address your specific issue, it's still worth a shot.
