When working in Word on my XP Pro computer and have copied or scanned documents that I paste onto the Word document, shortly thereafter, I get an Error Message saying Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The more copies or scanned documents I paste the sooner I get this message and I am at my wits end to overcome this from happening. Is there something I need to do in order to avoid this?

Your help would be much appreciated and I thank you guys/ladies in advance!

When you scan a document, it is sent to a Temporary folder as well as shown to you. When you are done with the file and delete,Email, or Save it, the Temp version of the document does not go away. There is only so much room in the temp file, and when it reaches it's limit it starts crashing when you Paste a document.
Download and run Temp File Cleaner to safely clean your temp folders.
