Word 2007 and Vista Updates

Another Vista update last night and, once again, Word 2007 is toast. This started about two months ago and has now happened three times.  My computer, which is left on pretty much 24/7 downloads updates over night and restarts itself.  When I login the next morning, everything seems to work fine.  I open Word 2007, […]
