Why does Microsoft word keep locking up on me?

I am trying to create my resume on Microsoft Word, I get about half way finished and the program locks up on me.

That sounds like you have a virus in your computer that is attacking Microsoft Word. I suggest virus protection software or spy ware protection software to fix the problem.

Do you have more than one application open? Sometimes if you have numerous software applications open and an older model computer, that can cause major lock ups on what you are trying to do. I suggest closing all other softwares except MSWord and go from there.

Try uninstalling and re-installing Microsoft Word. If that does not work, then try running fewer programs when ever you are on Word.
