Recently, several reports were received about one Word 2007 crash issue. Some users said that the issue occurs after installing the MS10-056 Word security update.

The situation is as below:

Word 2007 is no longer able to create new documents from templates which contain ActiveX controls. Word 2007 will crash when double-clicking the template file.

This issue actually occurs after 2010-6 CU (KB 983313) is installed.
