comment How to debug a problematic word document
I cannot share the document, since it is confidential. There are no images, but there are ActiveX controls (check boxes), tables and some other stuff.

Will try, but I seriously doubt it is a word issue - I just re-installed it and the problem is still there. It is almost certainly related to specific documents.

I am pretty sure the problem is with the file.

Actually, it so happens that the Word can open .DOCX filed compressed with the default Winzip compression method. It's when I try to change anything I get issues.

Problem is, that (unless it goes into an infinite loop, which does happen too, but not very frequently) to CPU typically goes up for 10-15 seconds when I am working with the document. When I switch to process explorer and word goes into background, its CPU utilization goes down before I have the chance to inspect anything.

Looks like it is harder than it seems, if not impossible. I started by removing the activex directory from the .DOCX and word failed to open the new file...

So your answer boils down to manually inspecting all the files that comprise the .DOCX format...will give it a try, but first I need to figure out what is the bare minimum of the information that .DOCX needs to contain, so that I remove everything else and see what happens.

The question is - how to DEBUG the problem.

I think that all attempted answers miss the point - the question was not: what's wrong? neither was it: how to solve the problem?
