Document recovery loop in Word 2007

    My computer restarted in the middle of the night, and I had left and unsaved
    word document open. When I rebooted my computer and tried to open a document
    in Word 2007, it pulls up the document recovery bar on the left and freezes.
    I have tried re-starting in safe mode, uninstalling and reinstalling Word
    2007, etc. Each time, the result is the same. I don't know how to get rid of
    the document recovery loop.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    generally, if a pc crashes
    in the middle of reading or
    writing to the registry or a
    file,

    then a chkdsk might help
    to resync the file system
    to the file table.

    however, it may simply
    mean that the file you
    were working on is
    corrupted an unrecoverable.

    but if you have set word to
    make backups of documents

    you might try to look for a
    ..wbk file in the folder where
    the file you were working on
    is located.

    be sure that the explorer is
    set to see "all" files including
    system files to be sure you
    can see the .wbk files.
