Check that you have latest updates (SP3) for Office 2007 or check via Windows Updates. Simple config.

What backup and recovery options do you have available?
For example: A system image or recovery discs.

Update
Upgrade Comodo to version 8 and tried on default settings for a few days.
Added Slimjet x64 browser as an alternative to PaleMoon.
So far i like Slimjet i think it's lighter than Chrome;)
PaleMoon after update to v.25 i have some freezing and it's not flash player problem.

frogboy yes slimjet is good and i am thinking also to switch to cyberfox but not sure yet because until v.25 Palemoon was the most stable browser i have ever used.
I am waiting new update that may solve my problem;)

Wow, your firewall is active all, whether frequent crashes or your computer is running very slow?
advice from a newbie, use only one firewall :)
I think that all of us use 2 firewalls (hardware + software firewall). I think that you missed that he use Comodo Antivirus not Comodo Internet Security :) Greetings @Adhit Prakosho :) Oh sorry Adhit i now see he's using ESET and on config page it is Comodo AV...however software + hardware firewall is not overkill
