    Office 365 apps freeze on startup, save, and Start Slideshow


    Every time I open Powerpoint or Word, they freeze and I have to close them in the task manager. When I open them again they work fine. And sometimes when I try to save a document, it freezes so I lose a good portion of the document.

    Also on Powerpoint whenever I try to insert a video, when I click Start Slideshow it freezes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Office twice. Is there a way to figure out what might be causing this problem? I can take screenshots of anything necessary.

    Hi pjmcguirk85

    Did this just start recently? Could you share Windows version and build number you are using?

    Is anything being logged in the event manager, especially in the application logs, when it freezes?

    Have you ensure that all updates for Office 365 are installed? Click File, Account, on right hand side there should be info on Updates.

    If you also check Windows update history are there any failed updates.

    On your inserting a video I found this, first problem listed.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I just learned to live with it because it seems very daunting to try and fix. I just open up task manager before opening and shut it down immediately through task manager and then open it up again. That seems to fix it.
