Microsoft lists this problem in their Knowledge Base, see

In short, they suggest using SR-1 (Word 97 for Windows Service Release
1). Plus they suggest some additional fixes, such as:

"To manually restore the graphics in a document, follow these steps:

1.On the Tools menu, click Options, and click the Save tab.

2.Click to clear the Allow Fast Saves check box.

3.On the File menu, click Save As and save the document with a
new name. Restore the graphics in this new document and use this new
version of the document from now on."
