Tech pages and Microsoft did not help me until now, but I have to produce
some text by this detestable Word application in a few days now.
Word95 and 97 regularly present me with "This program has performed an
illegal operation and will be shut down" messages.
It happens at saving to another but the default disk, or just scrolling
throught the document.
I openend one of the details once:
