If Microsoft Word Mac Not Responding

Hi, elfpower, and welcome to Apple Discussions.
I only have 2 GB of memory and a lot of files, but I've deleted everything I can spare.

If you mean you only have 2GB of free hard disk space available, that's your problem. Memory is something quite different, and 2GB of memory is just fine.
Your operating system needs a minimum of 5-6GB of free space on your hard drive at all times for its own temporary files. Optimally, you should try to keep at least 8-10GB available on the hard drive. So if you're down to only 2GB now, you're going to have to delete an absolute minimum of 3-4 GB, and preferably more, of data from the drive to regain the use of the computer for ordinary purposes.
The easiest way to do that without actually losing data is to buy an external hard drive and copy data onto it, then delete some of the duplicated data from the internal drive. You probably don't have enough room on the internal drive right now to be able to burn a CD or DVD, so copying data to those types of media isn't an option now.
