Symptoms: Microsoft word/excel/powerpoint/etc. crash a few seconds after being opened with the error message:
As a few clients of mine have upgraded to MS Office 2010, this problem has appeared a few times and it seems damn near impossible to fix… but there is a fix. You ready?
Set your default printer to the “Microsoft XPS Document Writer”.
I don’t know why this works, but it’s going to have to do until M$ releases and update/patch/fix/etc.
