Office : Application crash randomly

By | June 3, 2011

With Word or Excel 2010, you may experience a crash at the application launch, or new document opening. If you have a look at Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc), you can see this error under Application :

Faulting application name: WINWORD.EXE, version: 14.0.5123.5000, time stamp: 0x4c646b40

This is caused by the bluetooth plugin/add-on component for file transfer. You must disable it in order to get it working. Simply do :

– File ;
– Options ;
– Add-Ins ;
– Click on ‘Sent to Bluetooth’ and disable it.

If it still doesn’t work, you may need to delete the plugin. You need to be an administrator and have the User Account Control (UAC) disabled to do this.
