      I keep getting this error “We’re sorry (Really????) but word has run into an error that is preventing it from working correctly. Word will need to be closed as a result. Would you like to repair now?”  I have O365 subscription.  I keep it updated.  I have done quick repair, online repair (which de-installed & re-installed O365 – got an error on that! and I had to get download of new version to install.)   Searched online and have found a few things – but nothing that would work for me.  This seems to be most recent – https://support.office.com/en-us/article/error-when-opening-microsoft-office-apps-b84b6a63-4b8c-46ec-ae9a-ad91d6160d72

      I am not running MS anitvirus.  ESET & MBAM premium.  I am going to switch to Defender when ESET expires in December.

      This error is popping up frequently!  Has anyone seen it, repaired it, know what to do?    thanks.

      Have you tried Office Safe Mode to start Word without add-ins?

      Open Office apps in safe mode on a Windows PC

        No but I can open and use the app.  Just that this error keeps popping up intermittently and repair did not work.   How would safe mode help me to identify if an add-in is causing an issue?  Sorry not familiar with this. thanks.

          If you don’t get an error in safe mode you know it’s being caused by an add-in.
