This did not work for me. When I choose 'Switch To', the box disappears for a moment and then comes back. I have to shut the computer down completely to get rid of it!

It didn't work for me either. But then I noticed Excel had a pop up window waiting for a response, and I was also trying to work with Excel in Word. So maybe you can look for other apps to close, apps that you interacted with when getting this error. Hope this helps.
