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.

Unfortunately, I can't, as this is a confidential.

In fact, all the changes I attempted resulted in Word failing to open the document.

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?

BTW, I upgraded from 4GB RAM to 8GB. Needless to say, this did not change much - the problem is still there.

Not much...the usual apps, Chrome, etc...nothing special, really.

This is not a very large file I am editing, when this happens and not much else is running, to memory is hardly a problem. There is nothing exception in the I/O reads/writes and page faults statistics.

The HDD (SSD to be exact) is perfectly fine. The documents are saved locally.

The problem is still there, BTW - I just copy-pasted a certain text from subject to the search window and it found NOTHING.

comment desktop gadgets obscure icons
The gadgets are displayed over icons... I was expecting them to be organized and do not overlap. I can move them, but when the resolution changes which happens when I connect my laptop to a docking station it all gets messed up again.
